so does 10.6 actually resolve the issue? I'd need to update OS which I'm reluctant to do but this issue has plagued me enough

Hi,

The upgrade certainly works for me. All I can think is that you are missing something. It is a bit convoluted. In the preferences you can set the default behaviour when you open a new window, but if you right click the playhead button in each window you get extra options specific to that window. The upgrade has fixed the issue for me.

PS - I loaded a different project and the problem has returned.

!!!!!!

i wonder if it's worth going through system upgrade at this stage if it might not...
not looking forward to dealing with notarisation, etc...
Are all those issues solved in the last Catalina update?

I am also vexed by this bug. Very annoying. Seems to happen when I select midi notes in piano roll editor.

Hi Garry, I thought the bug was fixed, but then it happened again. I reported to Apple and they got back to me asking me to send a file and explain how to reproduce the problem. Unfortunately, now I can't reproduce it (maybe it was happening in a specific project?)
Can you reliably reproduce the bug? If so, please can I refer Apple to you so they can follow it up?

I have a file that reproduces the problem.

I created a new project, added one instrument track, picked an instrument, recorded some notes.
Open piano roll editor.
Make sure that catch playhead button is off.
(I also verified that all of the options to turn on catch playhead were disabled - by right-clicking on the catch playhead button)
Put it in cycle mode (I hit the "U" key)
Start play back.
Select any of the MIDI notes in the piano roll editor.

I put a video of the bug and the project file here:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/goq3s6cyogev ... LrMra?dl=0

I would *soooo* love a fix for this one. It really messes up my workflow.

Many thanks for this - I'll let Apple know right away!

Hi Jak - which version of Logic did you use to create the project?
I saw the video, and that's exactly what was happening before, but then they released 10.6 and now 10.6.1. I was getting something similar happening in 10.6, but less regularly. Now I'm unable to reproduce it. I downloaded your project file file and it worked perfectly on my system.
It's certainly much better than it was - but I don't think it's completely fixed.

I am on 10.5.1 - unfortunately I am still waiting for some plugins to support Catalina, so stuck on 10.14.6.

Guys I'm gonna test it out now. But I just checked the release notes for 10.6 and peep:

- Resolves an issue where Catch Playhead sometimes unexpectedly activates in the Piano Roll own editing notes during playback.

a little late in seeing this, thanks for looking into it. Damn, this means I may have to update... I generally resist! Thanks again, this has been a real irritation.
