I have got a fresh install of LightWave 9.6 (64bit) running on Windows 7 (64bit). In Layout I have Auto Key toggled on but it doesn't seem to be working. I put the playhead at frame 10, translate an object on an axis, and then as soon as I slide the playhead the object snaps back to its starting point. Am I completely missing something here?

If you go into options is Auto Key Create set to "Off"?

Solution from my coworker:

Press O to open Preferences, then under the General tab click on the drop-down menu next to Auto Key Create and set it to either Modified Channels or All Motion Channels.

I'm not sure what LW10 looks like, but may I recommend a little overlapping control between the three-option dropdown in the Preferences window and the toggle button below the timeline, NT? For example, turning Auto Key on below the timeline could force the Preferences drop down to Modified Channels, not requiring a user to go the additional step.
