After writing a fade using automation, when I switch to read, the master fader does not read the fade.  This happens periodically with the master fader.  What could be causing this?

Really hard to say with the limited information provided.

And to be clear, you don't write a fade using automation.  You *create* automation events so the fader moves automatically, right?

That said, I haven't had any issue with periodic failure of automation.  You can enable/disable it.  Perhaps you are accidentally hitting that shortcut?

If you go into Keyboard Shortcuts and search for automation, you'll see that hitting the J key toggles Read.

That's my best guess.
