Playback from Cursor in MIDI Note Editor w/ Multiple Clips Selected?

Ableton Hive Mind, please come to my aid!

In arrangement view, I use the "Ctrl + Space" (Cmd + Space on Mac) hotkey constantly to start playback from the position of the cursor within the MIDI Note Editor. However, if I have multiple clips selected while using the MIDI Note Editor, "Ctrl + Space" starts playback from the beginning of the selected clip instead of the current cursor position.

Short of clicking on the scrub bar above the MIDI Note Editor with the mouse (which I do not prefer. I want to execute the command from my keyboard), I can't figure out how to start playback from a specific position in the MIDI Note Editor if I have multiple clips selected. Does anybody have an elegant solution to this?

Use Shift+space.

In Arrangement the Clips don't play independently of the main transport's position.
