I get lots of questions. This particular one made me want to do a video. Special thanks to Tom, one of my newsletter subscribers.

    Thanx so much for the info. I have always found it difficult to figure this one out as well:
    On some of my sessions, when say I’m doing an edit in say the middle of a song. For some reason, when I press the space bar I have to liston to the whole song again from the beginning. Really sux when you are working in the middle to have to deal with this every time…..

    Page Scrolling does not seem to work during recording, however. Is there something I am missing, or is this a feature that no longer exists in PT LE?

    Please respond via e-mail.

    Hi Joe, thanks for the great videos and articles which are really helping me a lot. Can you tell me how to get the scroll bar to return to exactly the point it started from when I press the space bar to stop playback? It used to do this but now I have to keep clicking on a memory location marker to get back to where I was in a particular point in the track. I don’t know what I’ve done to disable this function, it was really useful. Cheers, Paul, (one of your English followers).

    Nice video, it’s good to know where these options are hidden in Pro Tools.

    Is there a way of scrolling left and right manually without using the mouse? We use a D-Control surface at college, which has a hideous rollerball instead of a mouse, with no scroll wheel. We try to use the keyboard as much as possible, but there doesn’t seem to be a way to scroll around the project. Any ideas?

      Hmm…good question. I really don’t know on that one. Maybe consult the D-Control manual. I bet there’s a button on there somewhere for it.
