GR - can i reverse functions of the front and rear dials ?

seems to me that if the adjust dial on the back was reversed to the front it would make more sense, in light of all the pentax cameras, i have which use the rear dial , so far the only thing that i find not great is that adjust dial, seems a waste to me, and too finicky to use anyway. so, can i reverse the functions of those two dials ? actually the rear one isn't really a dial at all is it .

You can set which you'd prefer to be Av & Tv in Key Custom Options > M/TAv Mode Dial Settings but yeah I don't think the rear dial is intended to be used like a wheel, hence why it's not available for Av/Tv selection in Av or Tv mode. It's a shame but I can't say I've noticed it until now.

I find it handy to set the rear adjust lever/button to changing ISO turing it back and forth.
