Hello pentax folks :) I need help!!

Hello Pentax people
Just joined this forum and am based in Liverpool in the U.K.
Could do with a spot of advice if anyone could help?
My Pentax k1 is doing my head in!
I used to get focus confirmation in the way of the viewfinder grid turning red ,but it has stopped!
And I can't find any way to turn it back on!
I have reset the camera but to no avail!
The only thing I have done is a firmware upgrade ,could it be they have got rid of this feature!
Any help would be great

Kind regards

Take a look at this page in the main menu. Are the AF points checked?

Hopefully that's you issue sorted, so I'll just say welcome and enjoy both the K1 and the forum.
