User Mode. Map one of the pads to Follow Action Global button.

Thanks. I was hoping it was built in via shift functionality. I may try and program it with Clyphx.

Unfortunately Clyphx is not working with Ableton 11 so I've come up with a temporary solution using a virtual midi bus and midi clips.

Setting up a virtual midi bus is described here: https://help.ableton.com/hc/en-us/artic ... l-MIDI-bus

Here is a tutorial on "How to control the scene selector using a virtual MIDI bus". You can apply the same method for controlling the Enable Follow Actions button with a midi clip: https://help.ableton.com/hc/en-us/articles/360000185640

The down side to this method is you will have to dedicate a track to dummy clips for midi commands. However, you won't have to switch to user mode to do this on the fly.
