exceptions to saving user mode

According to the K-3 II manual (page 80), the following settings can be saved:
  • Exposure mode (except for [] )
  • Sensitivity
  • EV Compensation
  • AE Metering
  • AF point
  • Flash Mode
  • Drive Mode
  • White Balance
  • Custom Image
  • [camera]1-4 menu settings (with exceptions)
  • [C]1-4 menu settings

Yet I can't find a list of such "exceptions" -- anyone have such a list?

Thanks!
Michael

Michael, select one of the user modes, then go through the Camera Menu. You will see the exceptions grayed out.

well if that is the case (and I don't doubt you) then "Memory Card Options" should be greyed out since setting that is always global. Probably a bug. Any other "gotchas" out there?

I doubt that focal length selected for SR is saved in users mode.

Probably several, but I am still getting used to the K3. I have figured my User modes to be:
U1: M 400
U2A 12-24
U3:Sports

Now I just have to tell them what I want there.

And I confirm that the memory card options do not save with the user mode. DRAT.
