Another K-3lll mystery: Catch-in-Focus

I'm still trying to learn the tricks and quirks of this new-to-me camera, and there are many. So far the new menu system has left me flummoxed, and no more so than when trying to activate Catch-in-Focus. First I scanned the menus, finding nothing abut it. The online users' manual listed the feature in the index on Page 24. In the manual, that page "Introduction" is a short of menu options. Catch-in-Focus is listed there as part of the C4 submenu, but on my camera, with latest firmware, a completely different set of options is shown on the screen under C4.

So, does anybody know how to set this up?

Catch in focus only works with a fully manual lens (no autofocus), or a autofocus lens that has a MF/AF switch on the lens itself.

^^^ Exactly this ^^^
"Catch in Focus" is the very bottom item in the 'camera' 1 "AF With Viewfinder" menu you have to scroll all the way down!
