Would someone please define the steps for auto punch. What is locater? Here's what book says:
•• Set theLeft Locator in the Timeline Ruler of the Arrange view at the
position you wish to punch in—that is, where recording should begin.
•• Set the Right Locator in the Timeline Ruler of the Arrange view at the
position you wish to punch out, that is, where recording should stop.
My problem is, I don't understand what they are saying when they talk about locater and how you get to locater. What is the timeline ruler and what is the arrange view. I tried markers and they didn't work. Help would be appreciated---Henry

Not sure if I will use the correct terms, but the process is simple enough.
The arrange view is the screen that has the actual wave files for view, above the mixer. At the top of the arrange view is a timeline (ruler). When you click just above that (lighter grey band), that will place the locater brackets where you click. This is what you will need to set to do autopunch. Drag one side of the locater to the beginning, and the other to the end of the area you want to punch. This should Bracket in your punch. You activate the preroll with the icon next to the metronome. You can use preroll to get your starting point (predetermined timeframe of lead-in, set just below the autopunch icon), or you can move the curser to where you want the lead-in to start. If autopunch is engaged, press record. Playback will start at the lead-in, and record will enable at the start of the bracket. Record stops at the end of the bracket.

Thanks Matt, I'll try that when I get home this evening. feel like I'm so dumb when it comes to some of this stuff. They mention these terms in the manual and I don't know what they are talking about, LOL. Thaks again---Henry
