Summary0006182: no loop from range markers
Descriptiongit acd6810


- new session
- new track
- record or import something
- select a time range and "Add Range Markers"
- right click on the new mark and "Loop Range"

  result: no loop

It works with the attached patch.

Note: if the original intention is not to bypass the command
history, `marker_menu_loop_range' could use only `set_loop_range'
and `request_play_loop'.
TagsNo tags attached.

I can reproduce the issue here and can confirm that your patch does fix the issue in that it starts looped playback based on the position of the range markers if a loop range doesn't exist.

One issue I noticed with it though is that if you undo setting the loop range from range markers with looping enabled then you can't disable looped playback. I think this issue with undo is a lesser bug that not looping though.
