Just started using Architect and I love it so far. However, I wonder whether it would be possible to improve automation in the following ways:

- visualize curvature value when dragging automation curve
- add ability to edit automation point, position and curvature values in the properties inspector and/or by right clicking
- add automation curve to patterns, in addition to step automation
- the above could be used as clips in FL Studio

- see how ableton live 10.1 allows to draw common automation steps and scale/skew automation

I was about to say that there should be a pop-up when dragging the nodes, and then I realise that you're talking about when you drag the shape of the curve. Yes, you're right, that does seem to be an omission. I'll add it.
- add ability to edit automation point, position and curvature values in the properties inspector and/or by right clicking
Yes, I concur, that would make it easier to compose specific curve shapes. I'll look into it.
- add automation curve to patterns, in addition to step automation
Absolutely: this one is already on the big list o' thing to do.

Thanks for the suggestions: I'll take a look and see how these two deal with it. I'm assuming automation skew and scale is a new thing in Live 10; or at least, it's not something I've ever noticed in Ableton 9.

Yes, it is new in Ableton 10.1 actually! Studio One also has pretty good scale/bend automation tools. But Ableton really nailed it in my opinion.
