How can I change the value of the volume automation in the small little window?

Hello all,
I have been trying to change the digital display in the tiny little window on the right of the volume field that is to the left of each track. Just to be clear, when you click on the colored field on the left of each track the bottom of the field expands. Of course, then you can choose the various different parameters like volume, mute, link to pander, enable output 1, etc.

My question is: when the volume parameter is active and you are reading volume automation, how do you change the digital information in the very small window to the right of the volume window? Each time I try, as soon as I hit enter it reverts back to whatever the original volume was before I changed it.

Of course I know how to change the volume automation levels of a track as it plays. That’s not the issue. I’m wondering why I cannot change the digital numbers in that little tiny window to the right of where it says volume. Does anyone have a clue on how to do this and what it means or a link to the description of how it works?

Thank you so much for answering this question that I have wondered about for a very long time.


Your referring to the Automation lane/track… okay


If Read Automation is on, you can’t, (it just bounces back) since it’s following the values on the automation track.
