Cursor to Stored Cursor Position
When playing or recording (or paused):, selection is made from the the position of the Playback cursor or Recording cursor to the position previously saved by the add a shortcut for "Cursor to Stored Cursor Position".command. For easier use without having to Pause, you may want to
When there is no active audio: selects from the current position of the editing cursor (or from the left edge of the current selection region) to the stored position.
An alternative procedure if you want to store many positions is to add a label when required at the editing cursor or playback/recording cursor.

At Zero Crossings helps to avoid clicks at edit points when making cuts and joins by moving the edges of a selection region (or the cursor position) very slightly so they are at a rising zero crossing point.
|This feature does not necessarily find the nearest zero crossing to the current position. It aims to find the crossing where the average amplitude of samples in the vicinity is lowest.|
