Annual Request: Changing Automation Values show values

Another decade-long request.

When you click on an automation point you can drag it up or down and the tool tip shows you the changing value. Similarly when you move events it shows you the position in bars/beats.

What I have always wanted in an option showing the -change- rather than the absolute value… as it currently does for moving bars/beats

So for automation points, it should show the amount you are moving up or down. eg. +2.5db

Get it? That would be a LOT more valuable to me most times than seeing the -absolute- value as it now does.

But since this is a Non-Sexy Feature Request (NSFR), I’ll be dead when it happens. That’ll show 'em.

Showing both current value and change would require very little screen real estate, and that real estate acquisition is very temporary in any case. So, great idea, but let’s have both numbers displayed.
