How to explicitly edit shapes in the event view?

Question

On an old project, I changed a bunch of CC events to an envelope on "Expression"(i.e. cc=100), and now I wish to edit the break-points of the envelope to explicit values. However, I don't seem to be able to edit anything regarding the shape in the event view, only using the graphical interface in the track view :S. Am I missing something? or is this a known limitation of Cakewalk? I appear to only be able to edit the envelope graphically using the mouse in the track view.

I'd like to set the explicit value at the low point (which was possible if it were individual CC events), or even the exact timing of the  event.

Currently my workaround is to zoom in heaps so that I can get some accuracy with my mouse in the track view, and then zoom back out when I'm done¬¬. Not the best when a simple edit/keyboard entry would get me directly where I want to be, and I would not need to mess with my zoom in and out.B|

You do not edit them in the event view.

However, to edit specific automation nodes, you can head to the automation lane.  Then you can right click on the specific node and select properties.  Then you can enter the values numerically.

Yep that worked, thanks👍

However, I do also think its a weakness in Cakewalk to not be able to edit the points explicitly in the event view grid itself.
