Can you omitt fade times when time code skip backwards?

I program a bunch of time code run shows. During programing, I tend to back the audio time code back 5-15 seconds to replay the track and see if my time code is right/efx is running like I want it to/testing a cue.

Say I have a 8 cue, cuelist (so far). And am working on cue 8,
Cue 1 00/00/00.00 w/ 0s Fade
Cue 2 00/00/01.00 w/ 0s fade
Cue 3 00/00/03.00 w/ 2s fade
Cue 4 00/00/07.00 w/ 0s fade
Cue 5 00/00/22.10 w/ 3s fade
Cue 6 00/00/24.12 w/ 0s fade
Cue 7 00/00/30.06 w/ 20s fade
Cue 8 00/01/12.00 w/ 0s fade

I program and update cue 8. Now I want that cue to trigger. So I back my time code up to 00/01/02.00 and push play. The cuelist auto backs up to Cue 7 and begins to fade. I now have to wait 20 seconds for the fade to complete before resuming play. Since I have to wait for the lights to move to where they will be at the end of Cue 7.

To try and speed this up, I usually have to stop the playback. use Skip Back, then Skip Forward to get the cue to skip the fade time. Having to try a cue 10 times in a minute, this gets old fast.

I want to know, Is there a way for the cuelist to Skip Back instead of GoBack, thus skipping the fade times?

    Trigger forwards only.

    Also you can simply release the list before you start your timecode

    Trigger forwards sorta works. It will only go forward. So when I jump back on the time code 20 seconds. The cues do not jump back to the previous.

    Release is the same problem. If I release, It resets everything. Then when I jump back 20 seconds on the time line, push play. Cue 7 will activate, and take 20 seconds to get to it's cue.
