I seem to have lost the 4-way controller on my 645z.

I have no access to the parameters that are accessed by using the 4-way controller buttons unless I turn on live view. I don't remember this. Maybe it's time to go back to that manual. Oops, 1200 miles away. Oh, well.

Press the button just above and to the left of the red button. It's the one with a 4-way icon and the blue SD card symbol.

This will get the 4-way pad to revert to controlling the sub-menus. Otherwise, it is used to select the active AF point.

Thank-you, Adam. That did the trick. It's the old age/memory loss thing.
