The ruler is mainly used to control looping and playback.
The ruler will display more or less information depending on the current zoom level. It will also display the following markers/indicators discussed in Loop Points.
- Cue point
Displayed as a blue, right-pointing arrow.
- Playhead position
Shown as a grey, down-facing arrow.
- Loop points
Shown as 2 green arrows, and the area between them is shown in bright green if loop is enabled, or grey if disabled. Can be dragged to reposition.
Clicking and dragging on empty space in the ruler (other than the top part, which is used for selecting ranges - see Range) will allow you to reposition the playhead.
Hold Shift to temporarily disable snapping
Setting the Cue Point¶
Double click inside the ruler to set the cue point. This will be used to return to when playback is stopped.
