    Hi,

    New to the world of Olympus m4/3 cameras and in need of help.

    When using the Super Control Panel on my E-M10 with the touch screen activation OFF, is it possible to move the cursor to different shooting functions to change parameters quickly without going to the menu. My cursor always is positioned over the AF mode and I can't seem to get it to move.

    Thanks for your help.

    Rear wheel to change item selection, front wheel to change the setting of that item.

    You should be able to move the cursor using the 4 direction buttons that are surrounding the OK button.

    Hi and thanks for the quick replies, but neither suggestion worked and that's why I'm confused.
    Rear wheel changes my f-stop and front wheel changes EI.
    Using the 4 direction buttons takes me to the S-AF selection position grid.

    I have been into the menu to set the fn1, fn2, and movie (red) buttons for specific parameters. I may have changed something regarding the SCP but am not certain.

    Any other ideas.

    You need to press "OK" first to active the SCP.

    If you're already doing that it sounds strange. Maybe a quick cell phone video would demonstrate your problem, or even just a picture of the LCD to show what you're looking at.

    That was it ! Had to press the OK button first to activate the SCP and used the directional arrows to move around.
    Thank you all for your help and patience. This forum is an outstanding source of help and information.

    You're right Zman, I've been coming here for years and always get help from other forum posters. Another "Thank You" to all the posters who have straightened me out.
