mono and stereo audio track


my question is very simple. In Cubase SX it was possible to toggle an audio track mono/stereo by clicking a specific button in the Inspector.

Now on Cubase 5 I cannot see this button anymore. How to toggle mono/stereo on Cubase5?

No way to toggle. You have to decide on what you want before adding the track

I think it is a step back from Steinberg. It is a very important function.

Is it the same in Cubase 6? Any idea if it is planned to be re-introduced?
