Pre-AF not working on my Sony a6000?

Hi. I understand pre-af is a full-time autofocus function where the camera will try to keep autofocusing even when I'm not half-pressing the shutter.

I have a Sony a6000, 35 1.8 OSS and 50 1.8 OSS.  In my case, when I turn on Pre-AF nothing happens. I'm using Program exposure mode, AF-C and Flexible Spot (S). I've tried Flexible Spot M or L, and Center - there is no fulltime autofocus either.  I've tried re-initializing the camera and the pre-af still doesn't work.

Would you please help me understand how to activate pre-af? Thanks.

Best regards,
