Need a bit of help with A77II settings ---

.

I can't find this in the book that came with the camera and am going on a shoot tomorrow of RC airplanes and would like to use the "Lock-On AF:Expand Flexible Spot" setting. When I try to choose that setting the camera screen says, "This operation or setting not available as follows" and under that is "Focus Mode -- Automatic AF". What do I need to do. I'm in Av mode.

Also, when I switch to Manual Focus the focus magnifier won't stay engaged. I have to go in to the menu to turn it on and it only stays on for that one shot and I have to go back into the menu to turn it on again for the next shot. Is there a way to keep it on ?

THANKS !
