The end of a waveform disappeared from view after adding bend markers but still plays back. What's happened?

Hi all.

First of all, just to say that I'm a relative newcomer to Studio One and I am still learning as I go along. So, my terminology might not be exact; and I appreciate your patience.

Anyway, this has happened a couple of times now:

I was manually adding bend markers to an audio waveform in the edit window (F2), and was working my way through from left to right. At some point, after adding several bend markers, the end of the waveform suddenly disappeared when I added another. The end of the waveform also disappeared in the arrange window. Subsequently, even though the end of the waveform wasn't visible (either in the arrange widow or the edit window), the audio still played back. In the arrange widow, the box indicating end of the 'clip' is still there; just a blank gap up to where the waveform is suddenly cut off visually. I found that pressing the 'restore' button in the bend marker menu of the edit window brought the waveform back in to sight, but (obviously) removed the bend markers.

Does anyone know what's going on with this? Any help is much appreciated.

Update: Interestingly, I just discovered that if I insert another bend marker in the blank space where the waveform is not displaying, the waveform reappears up to the new bend marker.. and so by going to the end of the clip and putting in a bend marker, I can see the whole thing again.

It was frustrating.  I too, just put a bend marker at the very end of the track and everything between reappeared.

Hi. I was starting to think it was just me LOL! Anyway, it's something I just accept now... happens every time for me... and it doesn't really bother me anymore... though I am surprised so few others seem to get this. I wonder what's special about us?! LOL! Thanks for the confirmation. Cheers.
