The AF configuration difference between 5D Mk III & IV

Hi guys,

once I had the 5DMk III camera I had configured its AF in accordance with the article published here: https://www.dpreview.com/articles/9174241280/configuring-your-5d-mark-iii-af-for-fast-action

There was described AF configuration procedure not mentioned in owner's manual. The result was that as long as you used the shutter button the camera used Zone AF for focusing on the selected Zone as you would have expected, but when you pressed the AF-ON button the camera would immediately focuse with 61-point automatic selection AF by initially acquiring focus on the previously saved home-point.

After switching to 5DMkIV I suppposed this procedure could be applied in the same way. Unfortunately it couldn't and the mentioned procedure doesn't work. Have you tried or managed to achieve the same effect also on the 5D MkIV? Many thanks in advance.
