I'd like to have a toggle that allows playback to start from the beginning of the selection vs. starting from the paused point

Often after pausing playback I'd like playback to recommence at beginning of the current selection. But AFAIK, when recommencing MuseScore only plays from the pause point.

Request: I'd like to see an easily accessible toggle that offers the following playback options:

   Start playback from the:
       • Beginning of selection
       • Paused point
       • Measure x
       • Beginning of score

These options could all be nicely housed in a Play button dropdown menu.

Ultimately it would be nice to have robust locator/transport functionality so we can jump to predefined points with a keystroke, but two of the aforementioned options would suffice for my current needs:

       • Beginning of selection
       • Paused point



I know it's only a partial workaround, when I want playback to always restart from the same point I put playback in loop mode. Then playback always restarts from the first flag.
