i'm not asking for Follow to ALWAYS be on. that's a silly idea (one you actually pursued?!).

the problem i have with it, which i explained to Amaury on the previous page almost 2 years ago, is that Follow switches off when you touch a note in the midi editor when nothing is playing. Amaury initially thought there was no problem, but then agreed and tagged the (now hidden) thread with a bug/problem number.

whether it's a bug or not, i don't know - i'd say it was more a 'feature oversight' - but it's on their 'to do' list, so it is an isssue.

for some reason I take pride in this

(if I didn't, it would become overwhelmingly depressing)

since that time I have got my shit together. now a rock will not stand a chance in my shoe for more than 3 hours at a time.
i don't understand does this mean i need to:
accept things i cant change
or
change things i cant accept? :|

Or can we just get follow to stay on as an option under preferences?

Holy smokes

Sorry to bump this if no one is interested but if so, is there any action on being able to lock FOLLOW to stay ON until I turn it off in the arrange view?

Wow. And I mean WOW!

This is hard for me to believe, reading through this thread, and realizing that I have the same question SEVEN YEARS LATER. What's even more amazing is that it looks to me like this was a Bug in 2009.

Did it get resolved? Is there a way yet to make Follow Stick?

Or did everyone just give up on it?

Yes. Use a current Live 9 version. If you're not using the latest then do that now. Can't say I've encountered this in any Live 9 version though.

I just did prior to posting what the OP say he did in 2009 and it worked fine. What is it that you have a problem with?
