I currently have to click on the "time display" to move the playhead. I would like to be able to click on the blank area of a track (where there is no clip) and have the playhead jump to that location. Is there a preference for this? This was working for me at some point.
You can either:
1. Click anywhere in the ruler area of the timeline OR
2. Choose the "Time Selection" tool and click anywhere within the multitrack to place the CTI (playhead) at that location.
If you have other tols like the "Move" tool selected, the assumption is that you want to move clips, but may not want to mistakenly move your playhead.
