K-3 EV top LCD display from numeric to back to linear bar values

I can't seem to find how to convert + or - numeric EV values back to the bar graph displays in the viewfinder and the top lcd in my K-3. My brain seems to process the bar graph much faster than the numeric displays in manual mode. Appreciate any assistance getting this back to the original display format.A reset didn't revert this function back to original.
Thanks

I think you need to disable the viewfinder electronic level display in order to get the scale EV meter back. Not sure about the top display, AFAIK I thought that didn't change.

Uncheck the electronic level setting for the optical viewfinder. That will normalize both the viewfinder and top LCD display.

Thanks Steve, solution as stated. If I don't find the MC 35mm Minolta lens, I'll let you know on the lens hood.
