record live midi automation to the automation envelopes

hello. can i record live midi automation directly to the automation envelopes? the way im using it now, it records the mapped midi automation to the pattern.i think i saw this option somewhere in the past but now i cant find it.

It’s the Pattern Automation Recording Mode, set in the Pattern Editor Control Panel:

(If you don’t see the Control Panel, right click in the Pattern Editor. At the bottom of context menu you can toggle it.)
