    I am not so used to shooting in AF mode, I neither am fond of it. Nevertheless I see it has advantages in some conditions.
    The thing I hate about it is that my EM5 is choosing a part of the frame to focus there.
    A green box appears somewhere in my frame and I have no control over it whatsoever.
    I programmed the Fn-1 button for 'AF Area select'. Every time I push Fn-1 and put the 9 boxer square in the centre of the frame, where I want to to be.

    What should I do to make it stay there?

    Sounds like you've got multi-area AF selected. Set the AF to single square point (small or normal), then just use the D-pad to move it, press ok to confirm. It should stay where you left it.
