Default Unable to edit automation item bug (FIXED)

-Create 2 items on the same track
-Create an automation item of the same length under both items, on the volume envelope
-Set time selection to second item
-Set global automation mode to latch
-Press play and record any automation to the volume
-Press stop and set time selection to first item
-Press play and try to record automation to the volume
-It will not change the automation item, but you should see the leftmost point of the second item’s automation item moving instead

macOS 11.2.3

Reaper v6.47/OSX64

1.4 GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5

16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3

The best way is to check the bug on the newest version.

Hm, can't confirm on Windows 10, Reaper 6.47 64-bit. Can you record video or GIF?

Yeah, I reported the bug on reddit first. Here is a link to the thread, video included.

I'm also not able to reproduce. We should be able to open the project, hit play, and move the volume knob to reproduce?

Ah, maybe I see. I can trigger the behavior if I set the time selection to start before the second automation item, and let it loop without stopping/starting playback. What's happening is that the second automation item is capturing the latch. What should happen instead is that when playback loops back to a point before the start of the latched automation item, recording should instead target the selected automation item under the play cursor, or create an automation item there if none exists.

Yeah, or ideally the selected automation item should be irrelevant to what is edited. It should edit whatever point is below the play cursor, regardless of whether the automation item is selected or not.

This should be improved in the current development builds, if you'd care to try it out.

Ahhhhhhh yes, it's perfect! Thank you! Is it safe to assume that fix will be included in an official update soon-ish?

It will probably be in the next release, yes.
