AutomationCreating and editing automation envelopes ► Envelope mode and Offset mode

Envelope mode. In envelope mode, volume and pan faders follow the project’s automation and do not respond to changes you make in real-time.
Offset mode. In Offset mode, you “offset” the current automation in a track using a parameter’s controls. For example, if a pan envelope is set to hard left (100% left) and you adjust the pan in offset mode to 100% right, then the pan parameter is now set to hard right. Setting the pan in offset mode to 50% right would set the pan to the center.
You can toggle Offset mode on/off with a keyboard shortcut. Go to Edit > Preferences > Customization - Keyboard Shortcuts and assign Envelope/Offset Mode to the desired keyboard shortcut. For details, see Key bindings.
