Urgent: Undo accidental change on empty automation curve!


We absolutely need this feature… I, for myself, keep accidentally hitting group, FX, or other type of channels’ volume automation curve which are empty (no points), and this creates a point and changes the volume settings of the channel accidentally without any way to revert back to what it was… My memory being what it is (like most of us), I cannot recall all channel volume settings by heart!

This issue causes a lot of wasted time to reajust these channels’ levels and is pretty much a non-sense that it is not recorded in the activity history for Undo/Redo at this time…

This is an URGENT request to add this feature --> UNDO to previous value accidentally drawn point on empty automation curve (volume usually). Now it doesn’t UNDO it to previous level, just removes the point, so you could miss value adjusted for hours). Neither in global undo nor in mixer undo at this time.

Thank you so much,

Absolutely. Agree 10000 times!

Still an issue on 10.5.12 here :frowning:

You can Lock track and automation disappear

+1 this has happened to me so many times!

Still an issue here :frowning:

Sad problem to lose your mix setup or have to keep on locking/unlocking the group tracks to avoid accidentally changing level!

Would need to be a “key combination” to get that “pen tool” out on that automation curve when it’s empty, to prevent such accidental “mix breaking” factor!

Thank you again,

Cubase 11 and this issue continues!!}
It is really annoing, specially when it happens on a fairly developed mix.

They just need to make “undo” revert the automation level to pre-edit when it’s undoing the first point inserted.
