Midi CC doesn't replace track automation.

Demoing 9.5. Haven’t used Cubase since 7.5. I would have track automation for let’s say cc11. If you draw some midi cc automation in the part, isn’t that part automation supposed to have priority? Of course, this depend how the automation options are set. It doesn’t matter what I have it set at; replace, average, etc., the part automation has no effect. If I turn off read in the track automaton, the part will then take effect.
