How to temporarily disable animation of a folder of splines, and work with spline animation only?

The splines of my character are vector animated at key frames. on top of this, they are grouped into a folder, and I use the visual axes to animate (at keyframes) movement and scaling of the entire folder.
Now I need to modify animation of the individual splines, but it’s difficult to do with all motions running.
How can I temporarily disable animation of the folder, and modifiy animation of the individual splines?
