    previewing audio from project window?

    vh2 Level 1

      I hate to admit it, but I cannot figure out how to preview audio files from the AE project window (CS5).  In older versions, I was able to merely double click on an audio file and it would play - and I am able to preview video and still images from the project window, but not audio (when I double-click on audio files, a footage window opens, but when I hit spacebar, nothing happens, as opposed to video footage, which plays when I hit the spacebar).

       

      The only way I can figure out to preview audio is to place it in a comp timeline - but this is inefficient and somewhat annoying.  I know there must be a simple answer, but I cannot figure it out.  When I check help files, it only tells how to preview from the timeline, not the project window.
