Ardour2 question

I have two computers running Ardour2.  One is running Ardour 2.7.1 on
Gentoo, the second is running Ardour 2.3 on Ubuntu.  There are some
differences in the editor UI which I'd like to reconcile.  Any help will
be appreciated.

In the 2nd installation, Ardour 2.3, the playhead cursor (vertical line)
extends only up to the bottom of the ruler stack.  On the 2nd, the
playhead cursor extends all the way to the top.  I would like to have
the option to change this behavior easily.

In the 2nd installation, left-clicking on the Range Markers ruler
creates a selected range between the two nearest location markers.  This
is very handy, but I can't reproduce this behavior on the Ardour 2.7.1,
having tried control and other meta keys along with mouse clicks, with
no luck.  Can this be changed somehow, or is it a feature that was
"upgraded" out of the program between the two releases?

Is there a better documentation source for Ardour than the one at  This is woefully incomplete.
