Press ``ERASE`` button to show the menu; use the arrow keys to navigate.
To change values, use ``SET``, ``PLAY`` and ``Q``. For most menu items, you can:
* press ``SET`` to change values forwards
* press ``PLAY`` to change values backwards
* press ``Q`` to invoke a special action (see the help text or the on-screen hints)
Press ``ERASE`` button to show the menu. Use arrows to navigate, ``SET`` to change values forwards
and ``PLAY`` to change values backwards. Some options may also use the ``Q`` button, or may have a different meaning for ``PLAY``.
Complex menu items may use different actions for these 3 keys. Please see the documentation of the particular menu item you want to use.
In photo mode, outside LiveView, you can use the wheel(s) to navigate in ML menu. Press ``Zoom In`` button to activate edit mode and change values of a menu item with the wheel (experimental).
Press the ``DISP`` or ``INFO`` button to get help about a particular menu item.
