If the "A" key does not toggle Automation Mode, make sure that the Computer MIDI Keyboard is deactivated:


Automation editing

Note that breakpoints created close to a grid line will now automatically snap to that line.


Hold down the ALT (PC) / CMD (Mac) modifier while dragging horizontally to bypass grid snapping. Holding down the Shift modifier while dragging vertically allows you to adjust the breakpoint or line segment value at a finer resolution.
