For position in the arrangement, it would be super helpful to have the play start marker be able to display a marker line along all the tracks of my song. Right now, it puts a thin line on the track I click on but in order to reposition or use this marker on other tracks I have to meticulously locate the play start marker position with my mouse each time I need to find the position for another track. Needlessly difficult. Or am I missing something.

To say more simply, I want the play start marker to have the option of displaying a line down through my arrangement window (for alignment of clips and automation)

thanks for any tips or clarification!

Is there another way to do this?

Would be useful to have this option for Cue Markers as well...

Can someone please answer wether this is even possible now? I can't find info in the manual about it whatsoever...

It sounds like you're describing the blue arrow that gets put on the timeline when you change the play start marker.

That blue arrow also shows up in the clip edit area (bottom of screen; the thing that shows when you press 'E'). I don't understand what you mean by "use this marker on other tracks"--do you just mean "find this same location on another track" ?

yeh, there's a little white line that comes down from the blue arrow when you click, which is great for aligning object, but it disappears when you click anywhere else or move the mouse. Would be great if this white line stayed at the position of the blue arrow so you can use it to align things...

it ain't perfect, but if you use the time selection tool (press 2) to select a region of the timeline at the top, it leaves some faint highlighting across all channels in the arrangement, and white lines on either side. You can eyeball things with that, but if you're moving a single clip, you'll lose the timeline selection when you click on the clip with the object selection tool. Might help, though.
