Click the Edit Filter control and select the desired data type. The Edit Filter control is available in each track strip in the Track view and in the Tools HUD (see Using the Tools HUD to select tools).
Tip: To set all tracks to the same Edit Filter setting, hold down the CTRL key when you change any non-selected track’s Edit Filter setting. To set all selected tracks to the same Edit Filter setting, hold down the CTRL when you change any selected track’s Edit Filter setting.
Tip: You can quickly toggle between Track Volume and the last/previously shown data type on the current track. To do so, press the PLUS (+/=) key. This only works on the current parent track, not in Automation lanes.
Although you can only edit one data type at a time, you can choose to always show clips and automation envelopes simultaneously. All but the selected data type will be shaded, or “ghosted”. This allows you to see all data types in context while editing a specific data type.
You can also hold down the SHIFT key and click any ghosted object to switch a track’s current Edit Filter setting. This is a quick way to toggle between editing clips and automation envelopes.Use the Edit Filter control to specify what type of data the global tools should operate on.
Click the Track view Options menu, point to Display and choose Display Ghosted Data on the submenu.
