Why does hitting record return cursor to start of bar

Looked everywhere for info on this. Can work around, but just irking me.

I'm trying to start recording midi on beat 2 of a bar. Every time I hit record in software or on controller, or hit the key shortcut, my cursor returns to start of that bar for the pre-count. Have tried turning off go. Messed with pre-roll. Looked for any record settings. Looked in options. Referred to the manual and maybe it's just not where I thought it would be. I've messed with everything and just can't seem to figure this out. Anyone out there experience this? Anyone have a solution? Literally driving me crazy.

If you don't want to record anything on beat one, then don't play anything on beat one?

(I'm not sure I understand what you are trying to do, I guess)

Another thought is that the main recording options you are working with all work at the "measure" granularity.

You can create a region that begins on beat two and use Auto-punch.  Then it would start/end recording exactly when you want.

I notice that this happens on pre-count as well, but it doesn't happen when recording without pre-count on. There doesn't seem to be an option in the metronome setup to allow you to record with pre-count on anywhere within the bar.
