Change cursor action

anyone know the preference setup to stop the cursor from jumping to the start after stop?
I want the cursor to stay where it is when I hit stop, not jump to the start again.

thx

JKL keys. J goes backwards, L goes forward and K stops it where it's at. The space bar will startthe cursor and pressing it again will bring it back to the place it started from.

IF that's not happening go into keybord prefs and you can change the action either globally or locally.

Hit the return key instead of the space bar. This can be changed around in prefs.

I frequently use J-K-L scrubbing as Don suggested, followed by holding down the K key and hitting J/L for slow scrub, followed by Alt-left/right arrow for frame-by-frame trimming of the cursor position.
