Volume automation blocked! How to unblock it?

Hello everyone!

I am trying to insert volume automation into the tracks of a piece and it is impossible (the track name flashes in red whenever I am trying to draw something with the pensil tool) ! I never did anything to block it and I have tried switching on and off the R and W buttons but it doesn’t work.

Any ideas why is this happening and how to make it work again?

Thank you!!

Have you locked the tracks?


Have you frozen the track?

Create a new track. Import the troubled track’s wav from the pool onto the new one. See if that fixes it.
