Dark/Bright area display

Hi all - just taken delivery of a K70 - haven't had chance to use it in anger yet but I'm just exploring the settings. Its my third or fourth Pentax DSLR - moving on from a K5 - and one thing I cant find or indeed find reference to in the manual is the flashing areas indicating under/over exposure when reviewing a shot.

Am I just being dense or has this been removed?

Thanks in advance,

Paul

It's been renamed to "highlight alert" and can be found under the playback menu and live view sub-menu.

The shadow alert option has been removed, likely because shadow are so easy to recover.
