Getting f/stop changes to show on the display?

So this has been odd. Usually I have found Canon’s functionality/menus extremely intuitive and fast to figure out. Not in this case!

The LCD is obviously a godsend for many reasons. I would think that, with my nifty 50, I’d be able to quickly and easily adjust the f/stop and see the effect on the blurriness right there. But it doesn’t update.

Ok, so I’d expect then that it’s something optical/mechanical and it can’t give me a digital preview. Fine.

But *then*, if I switch to the Scn mode, I believe, the one with blurriness, brightness, saturation, etc. controls, when I choose to blur the background, I hear the lens changing its aperture and the display shows the new blurriness!

So what am I missing here? Obviously f/stop changes are previewable in the display, from a technical standpoint, so why is it that in every other mode I have to shoot and review to see those changes?

Thanks all!!
