      Hi gbak.  I see that you've posted the same question at fcp.co forums.

      There is no solution, the "feature" of a stationary playhead does not currently exist in Final Cut Pro X.  

       

      It's a frequently requested option, perhaps Apple will add it in a future update.  Meanwhile, don't waste your time worrying about it, just focus on good editing.

       

      Meanwhile a couple of things that might help you:  

      (1) Do you have a Magic Trackpad for your Mac?  I use the "two-finger slide" technique which smoothly flows the visible part of the timeline back and forth across the screen. 

      (2) Turn on the skimmer and play with it.  It took a while to get used to, but I like it!
