How do you bypass automation lane in a track (without deleting it)?

One way: just grab and move the control that's being automated while the track is playing - it should temporarily disable automation of that control... the automation circle in the instrument rack should turn green to indicate there is automation, but it's currently being bypassed.

Click the green envelope point/arrow in the time display to restore the automation.

Not sure I follow, tried moving anything around that part, nothing would move.

You can't do this from any of the automation views.

Go to the instrument track plugin view, find the parameter which is automated (e.g a macro control, or a plugin parameter). You can use the instrument parameter search - or right next to the search text box, there is an automation icon, click it to hide the non-automated parameters... then just move the knob for the parameter (while the track is playing). Note: it should have a red circle next to the parameter name.

Like kzantow said move the knob/fader being automated. However you need to play the project while moving the knob to bypass the automation.

if you need help understanding how to turn on the automation again there is up on the toolbar where you see the automation lock to clip, there is a icon above it that turns green after you have bypassed the automation, press that and it will be active again.

Hope this clears the missunderstanding, please write if you have any further problems.

Thanks, I updated my answer to indicate the track should be playing; I didn't realize that until you pointed it out.
