|Platform||Apple Macintosh||OS||OS X (Generic)||OS Version||10.4 or above|
|Summary||0006770: Start and End Markers are moving unexpectedly|
|Description||The "start" and "end" markers are moving without user input.|
2 ways I've found to reproduce. There are probably more:
1) Manually drag the start and end markers. ( They should no longer be free to move automatically. )
2) split a region
3) undo the split
*) The End marker will move to the end of all recorded audio
1) select a range, and choose "set session start/end to selected range".
2) move a region that starts to the "left" of the start marker
*) the start marker will move to match the start time of the moved region

Looking at the code it looks as though this behaviour is intentional and there is no facility/option to turn it off at present unless I'm missing something.
Most(all?) changes to a playlist will trigger a re-computation of the session start/end markers and update them if necessary.
There used to be a flag, "free to move" IIRC, which told the End marker whether it had been set by the user. Once set by the user, the Start/End were no longer free to move. This code seems to have been removed. Perhaps it was changed long ago and I didn't notice.
Current operation seems wrong to me. The "moving start/end markers" have been reported by several users as a bug. Once I've manually set the start/end for my session, I want to export the same range every time(*); regardless of edits that happen within the session range.
(*) with the /possible/ exception that /newly recorded/ regions would extend the end marker.
||IIRC consensus was "they move automatically until moved at least once by the user manually" -- but that's not what current happens, either.|
This is still an issue in 5.5
Although it seems to only be an issue for the Session Start Marker when moving a Region earlier than the Start Marker on the timeline. The End Marker does not move automatically.
