Small improvements to midi sequencer in Record

When you press play in record, you see the vertical line moving across the midi sequencer, representing where you are in the song, which bar( or part of bar) you are currently listening to. I don't recall what it's called, in Sonar it's the 'now' time..

Anyway my point is, when you have any view other than the midi sequencer maximised, ie. the rack view or Mixer, you can't control the point at which the song is playing back from. You can see a visual representation of the song, a 'mini view' of the clips, along the bottom of the screen. But unless I'm missing something, you can't use that mini view to control whereabouts in the song you are.

That means that if you have the mixer maximised to do some serious EQ/effect/whatever tweaking, you have to fiddle around a lot to go to various bits of the song and hear what effect it's having.

So the mini-clip view or whatever it's called (sorry I'm on my girlfriends computer with no Reason installed) should have a way of doing that?

Also I'm finding it difficult without Markers; if you switch between the arrange and edit and they're set at different magnifications it's easy to get lost as to where you were exactly.
