Playing animation in "Active Editor Only" stopped working
Closed, DuplicatePublic


System Information
Xbuntu / AMD

Blender Version

Short description of error
Checking "Active Editor Only" used to only play in the editor the mouse cursor was hovering over (which would drastically help with the framerate), however now it just plays in all the editors regardless of where the mouse cursor is.

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
New file
Go to the "Playback menu"
Uncheck "All 3D View Editors"
Uncheck "Animation Editors"
Check "Active Editor Only"
Split the viewport so you have at least two of them open
Move the cursor over to one of them
Hit play plays in all editors...
