GR V Snap Focus Missing

I just received my new Ricoh GR V from Amazon. Anxious to use the snap focus function, I soon found the relevant section in the instruction book. It clearly states "In the [Shooting] menu, select [Snap Focus Distance], and then press... Well, I have scrolled through that menu about 11 times, and [Snap Focus Distance] is not to be found. It stops at [Restore Faults] and and it is not among the among the 15 options in the [Shooting] menu list. On two occasions, only 9 options displayed, that is, it would not scroll beyond the number that fit in the window without scrolling. I have no idea if I did something to cause this. The instruction book seems to be truly for a GR V, and the camera seems to truly be a GR V, as it matches photos of the GR V online. Can anyone tell me what is going on? Is it categorically a defective unit?

Are you in green mode perhaps?

Adam, by green mode do you mean mode dial set to auto shooting mode?

Thanks Adam. Snap focus distance can only be accessed in P mode, not in green.

Or any other mode for that matter, just not the green mode, which restricts a lot of other settings as well.
