write automation fader jumps

I don’t know if I mistakenly changed a setting somewhere but when now when I’m writing automation using the fader & let go of the mouse it jumps back up the the initial level.

It never used to, where is the setting to change this?
I looked but in prefs but couldn’t find one.


You need to set another automation mode than touch…I think auto latch does what you want, though can’t conform as not at DAW.

Open the automation panel or change it from the toolbar if you have automation mode showing there.

That was it.
I guess I accidentally changed that setting although I’ve never needed to (until now)

Thanks for your help!

FYI the jumping will only happen when you have data already written…on a completely unwritten automation track the level stays where you last put it so you might have seen this behaviour because of this.
