Within the MIDI editor, if I've previously recorded some notes and some MIDI CC in the MIDI item I'm editing I can still move the MOD wheel and the live MOD wheel value gets used so I can continue to play my MIDI controller and experiment with the section of the music I'm working on. In the Track Envelope Area, there is a battle between the recorded MIDI CC values and the live MOD wheel setting and the recorded MIDI CC values always win. If that were fixed, I'd be using the Track Envelope Area for all MIDI CC recording and editing.
Therein lies the difference. Track envelopes use host automation, which is a bidirectional protocol by definition. MIDI CCs aren't bidirectional, which is why there's no fighting. There's nothing to fix, if you have host automation it IS supposed to work like that.
