Sorry if this is obvious, I just can't find out ...
How to play a selection only (not in the waveform editing window but in the main window)
From one point to another, without to have to hit "stop" ???

Thanks very much in advance

    I'm not sure if it exists, but page 449 of the manual lists all the keyboard shortcuts . . . I'd look there.

    Puzzled that it doesn't exist? I'm not.

    I agree it should be there. It doesn't appear to be. It's not the only missing feature, that's why I suggest you file a feature request . . . if enough people do maybe eventually the program will have the features it should.
    As far as navigation and editing, It certainly ain't Protools or Logic.

    ok, what am I missing here? if I mark a selection in a multitrack project and then press the spacebar the playback loops from in to out repeatedly. if I make a selection in an audio file project and press the spacebar then again the playback loops that selection repeatedly ... as for where to post feedback, Apple's Soundtrack Pro feedback page is linked above

    Do you maybe just need to turn "Cycle" on? (press C).
    You can also enable the "Link" button in the lower pane's File Editor window so that the cycle region is automatically determined by the selection made in that window.
