White Balance on K-50

Is there an easier way to set the custom white balance on the K-50? I find it a bit tedious and I never know which of the three custom settings it is on. I wish there was an indicator on the one I'm on.

I don't change the K often enough to readily remember how to change it.....usually fumble through it in the dark as night time is when I use that wb function.....but the wb is always shown on the lcd display.....as I usually change between day n cloudy balance

It's not the K setting. Its the one where you take a picture and choose a region from the picture as your white.

HOLY COW! Thank you so much for posting about the white balance setup and especially the dropper in LR. My photos looked so much more in line with what I actually saw when I first took them that it's incredible! I still like playing around with the photo and bringing out whatever color I'm thinking needs to POP but seriously this is an A+ tip for a beginner .
