I Seems like I have to apologize for repetitively failing when trying to
set the edit point to the play head: With my ardour from git the j and k
keys still move the beginning or the end of the waveform to the mouse
pointer, not to the edit point even if I have set the right
drop-down-menu whose tooltip reads "Edit point" to "Playhead". Setting
it to "Marker" or "Mouse" doesn't change this.
But how do I set the edit point? Ardour has grown to be quite usable but
this time I am kind of lost...

Kind regards,
