preference for muted notes allowing notes beneath to play?

I had to reinstall recently, and when working with alternated takes of audio, I like to be able to mute sections and have the section beneath automatically play. I seem to remmeber there being a setting for this in preferences, but can’t seem to find it,


Not sure I am on the right track here, but are you looking for Preferences>Editing>Audio>“Treat Muted Audio Events like Deleted”?

That would be it! Thank you!
