We've already discussed Marker tracks in Chapter 4, so you should already be familiar with this track class. However, let's take a closer look at the fields found in the Marker track's Track List area: the Zoom, Locate, and Cycle fields. These three fields hold drop-down menus that display the Markers, locators, and cycle markers currently present in your project.
The Zoom field fills the Event Display area with the content found between the selected Markers (cycle markers always hold a left and right or start and end Marker position). You can use this field to change the focus of your work quickly from one region to another in your project.
The Locate field moves your play line to the location of the Marker you select in this field. If you select a Marker during playback, the play line jumps to that location and continues playing from that point forward. If your project is not playing, the play line simply jumps to this point and waits for your next action.
The Cycle field moves your left and right locators to the location of the cycle marker you select in this field. Moving your left and right locators does not move your play line to the left locator's position, however. This said, you can use the number one key on the numeric keypad as a keyboard shortcut to move your play line quickly to the new location.
