I would like to propose a name change for this action "Xenakios/SWS: Toggle stop playback at end of time selection". In my opinion it's misleading. It actually appears to function exactly the same as Reaper's action "Transport: Toggle stop playback at end of loop if repeat is disabled".
I spent over an hour trying to make it work, looking for a solution to what I wanted to do. Xenakios/SWS action works only for loop points, not time selection. If someone, like me, has Reaper's Preference "Link loop points to time selection" unchecked, this action does nothing regarding time selection.

I was looking for action that behaves like keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Space in Ableton Live. There it doesn't matter if you select a portion of a clip in the clip view at the bottom of the screen or you select a portion of a clip in Arragement view. It plays only selected part and stops. Loop points stay somewhere in the arrangement, untouched.

I'm aware of the workaround in Reaper that requires loop points to be copied to time selection. It can be done with custom action. However then loop points are required to change place, which in some scenarios is not what user may want. Then Xenakios/SWS action mentioned at the top works fine.
