Premiere Audio Meters - Bars disappear when playback stops

I'm new to Premiere Pro and I can't find an answer anywhere for this.  Coming from Final Cut Pro 7, I've noticed a big difference to how the audio meters work between the two.  In FCP7, if you stop playback, the meters will hold in place on the last frame you stop on.  This helps a lot by stepping through an audio fadeout so that you can see exactly which frame the audio activity turns to silence.  In Premiere Pro, the bars drop completely after stopping playback.  I've been trying to use the waveforms but that usually requires resizing the audio tracks back and forth between viewing the waveforms and going back to editing which I don't love.  Does anyone know of a way to get the audio meters bars to hold at the level for each frame?

Alas no audio no bars. I think that is normal behaviour for audio levels.

you can, I think, assign keyboard shortcuts to quickly toggle between timeline magnification vertically and horizontally (seperately),  and you can create  timeline presets in the timeline display settings (the wrench icon at the top left of the timeline) and assign shortcut keys to that will help with this.

User Voice is where the Adobe engineers look for bug reports, enhancement requests, etc. The urgency for bug reports or new features can be judged by how many of us users upvote the requests. You can search for similar requests using the search feature at the lower right. It's best to upvote a request that has some traction (votes) already, and you can upvote and reply to that thread. If you don't find one the matches your request, then enter a new one. Regardless, post a link back here so those seeing this thread can upvote also.
