NI Kontakt Automation - having trouble

I think this must be something stupid - setup issue – I can’t get midi parameter automation to write and make an automation lane for Kontakt instrument parameters –

I have Kontakt & Inst channel in write mode. “Reveal Parameter on Write” selected in the Automation panel

what the … am I missing?

Also in N8 how can I get Inst midi tack to open in ots own window instead of opening up at the bottom of the main project window – can that function where it open up in a lower pane in the Project window be defeated or turned off anywhere? – I’d rather have it open up in it’s own window.

thank you

OK - got it mostly worked out – sorry for the …
