How can I set the Green button to go to Monochrome?

Let's see. On my Olympus XZ-1, I can set the Custom mode to be monochrome, so when I turn the top dial to C, it's in black-and-white.

I don't see a C Custom mode on the K-01's top dial. Is it possible to set the Green button to switch to monochrome... black-and-white... and then back to whatever color setting I'm using, like Landscape?

I'm looking for the simplest, quickest way to toggle between color and black-and-white.

I don't think the green button can be used for that, does the K-01 have USER modes?

Set the Green Button to 'CUSTOM IMAGE'
Then when you press the green button on the camera, just choose BW.
