Add a stop button as well as a pause button
Or have a boolean setting in preferences to make the stop button work like a stop button and not a pause button as it currently does.
Yes, I know there's a whole loop functionality but that is excruciatingly tedious:
I have to go back to where I started playing from, then push R, then F11 to open the play menu, then find and click the little start loop button, then push F11 to close the dialog.
As opposed to just having stop go back to where I was playing from. Which is always what I want when composing and working on a section of music that I'm listening to over and over.
And not to mention when you paste a section and your loop points jump around crazily and you have to reset them.
Spacebar should be play and stop. Simple as that.
