Magnification in Live view

Hello everyone,

I'm trying with great satisfaction my new KP with an Helios 58mm f / 2 manual focus. I was wondering if there is a way, during focusing in live view, to zoom the image so as to see more clearly the focus peaking on the subject.
If I remember correctly on the K5 was possible through fn button (if I remember correctly).
Thanks

I use this an awful lot when shooting with a tripod, especially for closeup and macro type shooing even on autofocus lenses. I find out a lot that the autofocus is spot on that way. It is in the manual on pages 46 and 47.
