are there any printed info on settings?

A few settings related to common tasks. This is for the RX100 VI but the settings should be on the same tab.

Well, this has been an interesting journey. First I indicated that the settings were compatible with RX100 VI and VII. Based this on screen captures at

https://www.wimarys.com/rx100vii-setup-guide-with-tips-and-tricks/

Although the title of the article indicates VII, the screen snapshots are from VI. Sigh.

A few other goodies. Found that the Focus Area, for flexible spot, caused some features to malfunction in mode 1 (configure) where they worked just fine in mode 2.

Focus mode for normal shooting is AF-S. With this setting Eye AF works when you half-press the shutter release. Under AF-C you must configure another button for Eye AF and then press that button at the same time you press the shutter release. A bit awkward. How about simply placing a flexible spot over the eye?

I've updated the document with these changes. I've come to the conclusion that I will only document RX100 cameras that I have in-hand. This means that the document is valid for the VI, and not the VII. Close, but no cigar.
