Snap to markers setting?

Couple things I can't find in the manual:

Is there a setting to snap to markers?

Also, is there a setting to center the playhead?

If Snapping (n) is on you will snap to markers while scrubbing the Timeline.
If you would like to go to a marker use Shift up arrow and Shift down arrow for previous and next marker.

Hope this helps,

Thanks Guy,

The shift thing is going to be very helpful, but when I'm scrubbing it ignores the markers and just snaps to the end of clips. It seems like it should do what you're describing and as a default setting.

By the way if you're on a marker and hit "M" again you can then Edit the Marker and give it a name.
What's the advantage of this?
Try control clicking in the ruler area of the Timeline and you'll the see Names of all your markers.

The one thing that comes to mind is that for chapter markers, these names are exported to DVD Studio Pro and become the default labels for chapter menu buttons.
