I've never really grokked on the whole magilla of "levels" "links" "content" and view->scroll in play. And now things look different, albeit more sensible? Almost all the time I want scroll in play in all windows all the time. I'm generally dull on computing and consequently the way I've gotten things to work was by trial and error and then making notes of which little walking men to turn on, which chains, etc. Even after reading pages 101-102 in the manual, I just don't understand. I realize there is a preference about catching the playhead, however, the term itself seems puzzling to me. I have posts going back to 2009 documenting how dense I am about this. It is unnerving for me to spend an hour trying every combination of pref/chain and the new doodad that is the playhead. But never mind. I don't think I have the smarts to really consciously set this up. If someone could be so kind as to tell me in rote fashion how to keep the catch playhead symbol from blacking out as soon as I hit the space bar such that the playhead just goes right off the page into the ether when I have "scroll in play" checked, I would be so happy. I know it's a combo of links, content, view, preferences, etc. but I'm just throwing craps. I can't do it consciously conscious of what I am doing but I NEED to get it done. I will gladly purchase a tutorial on this one thing that so many of you understand so clearly. I keep trying meanwhile. How to make the SPL or whatever "Scroll in play" in main area?
