Checkbox in TIMELINE panel of Preferences window also affects playback in Source Monitor

In the Timeline panel of the Preferences window, the checkbox "At playback end, return to beginning when restarting playback" doesn't just affect playback in the Timeline, but also in the Source Monitor.

 

Why is this a problem?

 

Because users have very good reason to NOT WANT to return to the beginning of their Timeline when restarting playback, while also ALWAYS WANTING to do so in the Source Monitor.

 

Unfortunately, the all-or-nothing approach of this checkbox affects playback in both the Timeline AND Source Monitor.  This design is illogical, and frustrating.  Playback in the Source Monitor should ALWAYS return to the beginning of a clip when restarting playback from the clip's end since there is simply ZERO reason the ever not want this to happen.

 

Whether this is indeed a bug or by (very poorly thought out) design, I am not sure, but either way, this needs to be fixed.  It should be a relatively simple fix.  Simply set the Source Monitor to always return to the beginning, regardless of the status of this checkbox in the Timeline panel!

 

Thank you!

Moved to Ideas board as this is not a bug but by design.
