Editing Button Functions (2.2 Change button functions)

The UP, DOWN, and SET buttons and MENU+UP, MENU+DOWN and MENU+SET button combinations can be programmed to perform many different ‘shortcut’ functions in normal display mode. This does not change the function of the buttons from their standard purpose in menu display mode.

To change a button function: -

1. Press MENU button to enter the menu display mode.

2. Use UP/Down button to navigate to the menu item “2.2 Change button functions” and then press the SET button.

3. You will be asked to press the button you wish to change the function of. Press either the SET, UP or DOWN button. Alternatively you can hold down the MENU button, press and release one of the other buttons and then release the MENU button. This has the effect of selecting the MENU + UP/DOWN/SET button combination.

4. The display will change to show which button is selected (on the first line) and the current function assigned to that button (on the second line). For an instance if you select the DOWN button, and currently it has the “Previous Screen” function assigned to it then the display would look as follows: -

Then use UP/DOWN buttons to select a function to assign to this button. The second line of the display changes as you select the function.

Following are the shortcut functions that can be assigned to the SET, UP or DOWN buttons or MENU+SET, MENU+UP or MENU+DOWN button combinations: -

  • Next Screen
Scrolls through the screens in ascending order
  • Previous Screen
Scrolls through the screens in descending order

5. Press SET to assign the selected function to the button. The DASH4PRO FD will be returned to the normal display mode.
