Help about live view on 5d3

Hello everybody,

i m on a rural trip in china in the province of qinghai.

i can't read the manual since obviously I don't have it w me.

i have a question regarding the live view mode.

When I shoot landscape I always use live view to focus.

Lately I have been using a lot the electronic level.

The problem is that when I press info during live view I have to press it 4 times to display the electronic level.

unfortunately every time I press it a lot of shooting info are displayed, and they clutter the whole display, and most of the times I can't see clearly the scene I need to frame.

I know there is a Su to display the level without the live view, but that doesn't help to get the right framing, So I would prefer to use it during live view.

is there a way to display only the level during live view without all the other unneeded info?

thanks so much for your help.

i do not have Internet on a regular basis as u can imagine, so I might not be able to answer right away
