It seems to me that it should be easier to set the play (or, as the Logicians would have it, "playhead", which sorry to say, sounds rather inappropriate in a family-oriented program like this one) position. One has to click in the miniscule marker area above the Arrange window. Be careful not to click too low, or nothing happens. Be careful not to click too high, or you might set a loop instead! One should be able to click in empty areas of the Arrange window to set the play position. One should even be able to click inside regions to do so. At least this could be an option. Ableton Live works very well in this way, and it's very easy to move around. Another nice feature from Live is that setting the play position in this way generally rounds to the nearest beat subdivision. That should be an option (or with a modifier key, perhaps) in Logic. This would be especially useful when one wishes to paste a region or event at a subposition, as commonly is the case.
