I am creating an action w/ using the high pass filter and would like to pause it to adjust the amount.

Hi ylwdog

I have cut and paste a sample below. In the Actions Panel (after you have finished recording the Action or while you are recording the Action), there are two columns that can be checked. The first is whether that particular Action Step should be done at all. The second column turns on the dialog or not. If you check that later column, it should pause and wait for you to make adjustments. Let us know if that does the trick for you or not.

There are two boxes beside each step in an action. In the 2nd column, steps which have usually have human input have a toggle switch which can be turn on to cause manual input or turned off (default) use the last set of input values. Example below.
