Chord Pads with Patterns

I’m not sure if I’m missing something. I create a Chord Track, drag and drop the chord pads I want onto the Chord Track. I’m able to assign and route the Chord and Midi Tracks so that they behave and sound as expected using my chosen VST instrument. That’s all good.

When I assign a pattern to the pads the only way I can get a track to exhibit the pattern is by recording the chosen track. If I drag and drop a pad that has a pattern assigned to it my track will embed the Chord and not the Pattern. I’m unable to determine if these patterns can be embedded in the Midi Track without having to record on that track?
