Disable playhead follow during drag & drop and other actions
This can be frustrating and should be a no-brainer to implement. Basically, the playhead following during playback should be prevented if the user is currently holding a clip/layer during a drag and drop or other timeline related activity. For example, sometimes I'll be playing back the timeline and there's a clip I notice should be put at this or that place instead, but it doesn't warrant stopping playback as it's a quick small thing to change, but the timeline will switch to the next "page" and suddenly my clip is over that new "page"... the playhead tracking could wait for that clip to be dropped and -then- move the timeline ahead, once that's done. Thanks!

Jim, if you read the post, it clearly states that "I'll be playing back the timeline and there's a clip I [move], but it doesn't warrant stopping playback as it's a quick small thing to change". As in, I'll move the clip -during playback-.
I'm using the feature, I want it to be smart enough to not switch ahead while holding something with the mouse.

Turn the feature off if you're not actively using it.
