I'm having trouble finding the fades option circled in red in the following screenshot, which was taken from this video:

youtuber - once fade option is selected

Here's a closer look at his options:

youtuber - fade option in dropdown

And here's what I'm seeing in arrangement view (first image below is in automation mode and second image below is not in automation mode):

no fade option in dropdown automation mode

no fade option (but fade handles) not in automation mode

I have searched the internet, including Ableton's reference manual, but I am still not sure what the solution is. Any tips?

Thank you!

9/19 update: I've contacted Ableton Support on this--let's see if they can help.

  • It's a commercial product you have to pay money for. Have you asked the seller for support? How did they respond? Sep 18, 2022 at 0:22
  • Ableton support is not good. I'm still waiting on a response for an inquiry I made a week ago (separate issue). Also, you pay up front for the product--I don't continue to pay for support or anything like that.

  • Try pressing the "a" key (you may need to select the track first — try both ways). If that works, let me know, and I'll type up a more complete answer.

  • I’m voting to close this question because it's a basic customer support question, best addressed to the application developer.

    @aaron I used the A key in order to turn automation mode on/off. I also turned the MIDI icon on and off to see if that would help. I used this video as a reference: youtube.com/watch?v=fL7wF08WoV8
