Cubase not reading automation

I’ve searched probably from here to the moon trying to figure this out. I create a simple automation by right clicking on LC on the stock EQ in Cubase and click on “Show Lc-freq automation track.” I then use my mouse to make points of where the low cut should be automated. It happens a lot to where it will just ignore the automation completely and will only perform the automation if i open the edit channel settings. But soon as i click on a different track it goes back to not reading the automation. It’s destroying work flow. If someone could help me out please this would be the end of all my troubles.
