    I'm draging and dropping a sample into to Kontakt 5 and opening the Wave Editor. When I press a key, I hear the sample but the playhead does not move across the sample as it's played. How to I enable the playhead please?
    Edit, the play head shows if I pop-out the Wave Editor into a separate window, but not when it is in the Rack view - is this normal?

    Cannot confirm this, playhead shows just fine.

    When you press a key you won't necessarily play the sample that's in front of you.

    Make sure the group that is opened for editing and contains your sample (highlighted in the Group Editor) flashes yellow when you play your note. If it doesn't, but another group does, you're actually playing a sample in that group, and you need to look at your Group Start Options.

    Thanks for your suggestions. The single group does flash yellow and I hear it as before. But still no visible playhead in the docked Wave Editor.

    Is your sample highlighted in the Mapping Editor?
