I wonder if there is a way to control the playback in the timeline while I'm active in a different panel?
Here is an example of where this might be very useful: When I transcribe text from an interview in the marker panel, it's very useful to have the videos on the timeline playing in the background, but quite often I have to rewind or stop and start the playback. Since the shuttle-shortcuts only work in the selected panel I have to click on timeline-panel, rewind, start it over and then select the marker-panel and start typing again. If I could have some dedicated keyboard keys or mouse gestures that would globally control timeline-playback no matter what panel was selected then that would make things a lot easier.
I'm even open to tips on hardware that has this functionality, but I basically just need start/stop/rewind-functionality so it should be possible to do this with shortcuts/mouse gestures.
