Punch In Automation Recording And Default Automation Type

Hi All,

Am I right in thinking that we can’t “punch in” recording the automation as of Renoise 2.7.x? Say, I am recording filter cutoff automation in a loop of a pattern, when pattern loops back again, the automation changes I make will only merge with what recorded in the previous loop, correct? Or am I missing some option somewhere?

Also, it seems to me that the default type of automation will be recorded as points. Can we configure it so that the default type is line or curve?

Thank you,
