Unfortunately D800 does not let you customize it

Just received my D800. My D700 and D3s are set in playback mode to go through the photos when you go 'up and down' v.s. left to right, which is the default of the 800.

I've searched but can't find this setting in the menu. I remember in the other cameras it being a bit obscure.

Unlike D3 (I don't know about D700 as I don't have the camera), D800 does not let you change image advance option to up/down from left/right. In D3, it is the option f3. But D800 does not have it.

I had my D3 customized to advance images via up/down. But I changed it back to left/right after getting the D800 so that I have the sane controls on both cameras. I got used to it pretty quickly.
