Is this a feature, a shortcut, or a bug?

Hi everyone,

I'm getting some strange behavior and I'm wondering if it is a shortcut I have I have carelessly set up or it is in fact a bug?

The behavior occurs when I add a a default transition to the start of a clip (ctrl + D on my keyboard shortcuts), then immediately hit spacebar to preview it. Instead of playing the clip from the playhead, which is snapped to the start of the clip I am adding the transition to, it will move the playhead to the beginning of the sequence and play it from there.

I currently have the home button set as the shortcut to go to the beginning of the sequence, so there is no way I am accidentally hitting that button. If I put the playhead anywhere other than on the start of a clip, and hit the same key combination (ctrl + D, then space) it behaves exactly as it should - ignores the Ctrl + D command, as there is nowhere to put a transition, then plays from the current playhead position. This also happens regardless of where my in and out points are set on the timeline, so it is not me unknowingly hitting the "Play in to out" shortcut (shift + \ on my layout, or shift + spacebar for pre/post roll)

Is anybody else able to replicate this behavior? And is this supposed to work this way, or is it a bug? Is there an assignable shortcut for a something like "Play from beginning of sequence"? I couldn't find any such options in the keyboard layout preferences. Or is it a design feature, where any time you add a default transition Premiere assumes you now want to preview your entire clip from right back at the beginning?

I am using Premiere Pro CS6 (6.0.1).

Thanks in advance for any help.

Update to Premiere 6.0.3.
If that does not help, trash preferences and Media Cash Database.

Edit > preferences > general, uncheck the box for "play work area after rendering previews"

Thanks Vaughan, I'll try that.

Is this something you've experience before and did this solve it for you?

From your description, it sounds like PPro is doing what is normal when that particular option (play work area) is selected. If you don't want it to do that, deselect the preference.

I'd agree that it sounds like 'Enter' key behavior...but it would return to the beginning of the work area (or, if you hide the work area like I do, a sequence in point)...not necessarily the beginning of the sequence as such...

Variations on this sort of thing have popped up when applying transitions to clips that have a different framerate than the edit sequence. What's the relationship between the edit sequence settings and the clip properties?
