Default Mouse wheel automation fader adjustment

The fader fights me when I use the mouse wheel to record automation. By fights me I mean that when I try to adjust it, it just vibrates a little and stays at zero unless I give it a big scroll. This makes the resulting envelope clumsy.

I dunno if this is intentional, but it seems like the mouse wheel would be the most precise and natural method of adjustment for those of us without control surfaces.

And related to this, it would be great if there was a key to enable automation recording without enabling it for all tracks, like holding alt and moving the fader or something...

It only gets recorded on tracks where the envelope is armed for recording anyway. But maybe you meant something else. Actually, it's arguable that there should be a better way of arming / disarming envelope recording for highlighted tracks - at present you have to go down them one by one.

The mousewheel problem only seems to happen when the fader is at the zero (middle) point - once moved from there, it responds as expected.

Right, I was just thinking it would be nice to be able to hold down a key and then adjust a record enabled fader without having the "Record faders to envelopes" or whatnot enabled. Especially because automation record enabling all tracks adds some significant CPU usage.
