Serious idiot question re: changing Z7 aperture

I just bought a Z7 this morning. Finally took the leap. Lovely camera.

Here's the idiot question: how do you change the aperture using the main command dial when in aperture mode?? I can't get it to work. In shutter mode, the main command dial works fine. It changes the shutter speed. But in aperture mode -- it does nothing.

I checked the menus and found "aperture lock" (F4) and it was off. I turned it on and off again just for grins. No effect.

The only way I can change the aperture is by using the touch screen, which is nuts.

I'm using the kit lens.

Do I have a lemon, or is there something seriously obvious that I'm missing?
