Would rather have scroll feature scroll instead of scrub in Pro Tools 12.

My Faderport 8 doesn't scroll in scroll mode with Pro Tools scrubs.  Scrolling would be much more useful.

Also, the play/pause button doesn't work properly.  If you press while it's playing, it returns to the previous start point and continues playing.

Will there be a future patch or firmware upgrade to correct these two issues?

Just viewing and agreeing but not clicking on the vote does not help the issue.

I personally love that it Plays and does not Pause. I use the Stop button for that.

I also have a customized box of buttons on my left, that has a button that also Plays from the cursor (as the Faderport does), no matter if I am already in play.

I often want to Play again, from the same point that I started. The [ key will also do this, and the ] key will Play with any PreRoll you have.
