Render on Load & Follow Playhead -- in Logic

I’m using Pro version 1.2.2 as a plugin in Apple Logic version 10.6.2. I have two requests:

  1. Sometimes the playhead in the plugin doesn’t track to the main playhead in Logic. Specifically, sometimes I’ll play a few bars and press stop in Logic but the playhead keeps moving in the plugin unless I go into the plugin and stop it there as well.

  2. When first loading the file, the vocals don’t render unless I open the plugin for each track where I’m using it. I’d love the vocals to render when opening the Logic file so I can just start writing. (I often separate vocal parts into multiple tracks to have more control over them in Logic).

Thanks for listening!

Incidentally, it looks like the Dolby Renderer syncs with Logic by utilizing a timecode track:
