Space bar keeps going BACK to beginning!

I'm editing a comp for a school project and when I pause (space bar) and press play (space bar) the playback goes BACK to the beginning of my comp and not where I had paused it in my timeline. I'm trying to see my progress from when I'm editing in my timeline without having to watch the video from the beginning. How do I stop this? I must have hit a few keys of selected something to mess up my spacebar functions

Dave you're being super unhelpful and honestly quite patronising – heres the answer to your problem:

Go to Window > Preview.
In the Preview menu, select the Play From option, the drop down has two options: Current Time or Start of Range.
Select Current Time to preview the video from any point in your timeline.

Hope that helps!

No, you just don't know how to preview.  Since the topic is more than can be covered in a post, I invite you to look up the Views And Previews section of AE Help.  You'll learn a lot.


Really.  Previewing is an acquired skill  And depending on your circumstances, you may want to do it in different ways.  One thing you should NOT do is to hit the pace bar and expect miracles

Where do I go to find "Views and Previews" in the AE help?

Just letting you know, since this project is for school, I'm at a high level of stress because of this. I'm just new to this program. This space bar problem didn't exist until recently, which leads me to think something happened with the program??? Since I'm a beginner at AE, although saying I "dont know how to preview" is true...it isn't helpful but its painfully obvious that you come across arrogant. If I did know how to preview I wouldn't be on this forum wasting my time, right?

I'll give you my circumstance: the space bar doesn't function the way it used to. The space bar, to me, meant "play and pause and play from where I paused in my timeline"...but now it means "play and pause and play from the beginning..." which I don't want. Previewing may be an acquired skill, but I think "not stating the obvious" and actually being helpful is a better skill.

Buddy I have seen you on many posts and you have been mean and degrading. I would have to agree with the others in saying that you are coming off as arrogant. We need positivity in this community, and you are not showing that at all.

Thanks for the help, Adobe forums need people like you kelano38264867 who reply to help others, which is the forum's main target.

I'm an ACP mainly active on the Premiere Pro forums, but I come across here from time to time to try to help users,

and I'm also annoyed by the way you reply @Dave LaRonde! This is not by any way helpful to users. If you are not willing

to come across with helpful answers, better not reply at all then! Sorry but this is not the first time I encounter such

unhelpful and useless replies to users on the forums, the forums which were designed by Adobe to help their users.

Professionalism is not just about knowledge, its about being helpful as much as you can ...

I'm having the same issue but I can't find Window > Preview, it's just not there so I can't find the menu where I can change this setting, it's driving me insane... I should clarify I am very new to this program.
