Greetings All, I've had Audition 3.01 since forever and recently upgraded to CC 2019 and hopefully, I am simply overlooking a setting somewhere and someone can set me straight. I work with live concert recordings and work on an entire show (2-3 hrs in length) in one .wav. In Audition 3.01, I could begin playback and then move the cursor/mouse to a different section and use the mouse wheel to zoom in on the position of the cursor/mouse. Essentially, I could be listening to the .wav while scouring the entire .wav for anomalies, etc. In CC 2019, no matter how I set the "Mouse Wheel Zoom" option, CC 2019 always zooms to the playhead position during playback. I want to be able to zoom in to the cursor/mouse position while listening to the .wav instead of zooming in to the playhead position. I've used Audition 3.01 for so many years that the ability to zoom in to the cursor position during playback, rather than the playhead position has become in-grained in my mastering routine and I hope there is a way to replicate Audition 3.01's behavior in CC 2019. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the quick reply, however, as I mentioned in my original post, neither of those settings make a difference. No matter which option I select, CC 2019 zooms to the playhead position, never the cursor/mouse position. Any other thoughts?
You will probably also have to turn off Autoscroll option from the Playback preferences since that will tend to override the mouse cursor position by trying to keep centering the Playhead during playback.
Also I don't think that this will work properly unless the Scroll Type is set to 'pagewise'.
Salute, a pet peeve solved, thanks so much. In my case I can leave the Autoscroll option "on", and what made the difference was setting the scroll type to "pagewise". Now CC 2019 zooms to my cursor/mouse during playback rather than to the playhead. I never would have thought to check either of these options on my own. Many thanks again.
Where do you find the 'scroll type' pagewise option?
Edit>Preferences>Playback and Recording, in the Auto-Scroll box.
