Release automation when outside recording

Hi

If i record a track with automation, the faders etc. on the mixer are locked until i disable automation (READ), even if i go outside the recorded area, as the automation track continues forever.

The problem is that, if i turn off automaton, and correct something, place (me) after the recording and enable automation, it return to perv. setting

Is it possible to release the mixer as when starting to record on an empty track, when you are after any recording?
