1.7.2. Playing a selection

It is possible to play only a selected part of the document. Do the following:

  1. Make a selection (see Section 2.8), or click on an annotation.

  2. To play the selection, do one of the following:

    1. Click on the Play Selection icon.

    2. Or use the shortcut key SHIFT + SPACE.

    The selected part is played immediately. To listen to the selection again, repeat step 2.


If the crosshair is positioned somewhere within the selection (i.e., if it had been manually moved forward or backward, see Section 1.6.3), playback will start from that position and stop at the end of the selection. Otherwise, the whole selection will be played.

If you want to loop over the selection, be sure to check the Loop Mode box (next to the Selection Mode checkbox).
