Automate screen control movements

You can automate the movements of screen controls, just as you can automate plug-in parameters. When you automate a screen control, the actual screen control movements, rather than underlying parameter values, are written.

Automation for multi-mapped screen controls is retained even when the underlying plug-in is changed or removed. However, if all of the plug-ins to which the screen control is mapped are removed, the automation is deleted.
