Pro Tools Metering Question ... DAW Software

Pro Tools Metering Question ...

i have a quick question about pro tool's track metering.

i'm use to the way logic pro has it's metering set up, and i was wondering if this can be accomplished within pro tools..

in logic, whenever i turn down a fader on a track. the track's loudness adjusts..
for example, if i turn down a fader, the meter shows the track level go down.

however in pro tools, no matter if i set the fader +4 DBs, or -4DBs the loudness stays put, and doesnt adjust to where the fader is. its almost as if it only shows the volume of the specific track regardless of me adjusting the volume..

is there a setting i can do it so the volume meter adjusts to whatever i put the fader to? or does pro tools just not work this way?

Go to the options menu and un-check "Pre-Fader Metering". That should do it.
