Green button for file format question

I have both a K-r and K-01. With the K-r, when the green button is set to change file format, I can take a picture in JPEG for example, and if I like it enough or feel it would be better in raw, I can hit the button and save as another format before taking the next shot. This helps when taking family snaps where I don't feel like editing 95% of them in raw, but I can cherry pic the one's I want.

With the K-01, I can assign the same feature to the green button, but it seems I have to press the green button to change the file format before I take the picture, thus not really doing the same thing, as I can't see the future. Am I doing something wrong, or is there no way to save to a different file format after taking the shot?

The camera has to be in single shot mode. Then after the shot and while the preview is showing you press the exposure compensation button. It will ask you to confirm saving in raw.

Thanks. I new I was missing something. Looped up here on cold medicine, clearly not thinking clearly.
