Thoughts on Dual Slot Management aka What Do You Do w/ Slot 2?

Hi friends. New a1 Owner here with my noob question of the week!

I am curious how people - specifically those not shooting video - are using their two slot setup? In a previously life I would shoot Raw+JPEG w/ Raw on Slot 1 and JPEG on Slot 2. My questions are as follows:

  1. Is this still done? I tried to set up my a1 this way but for the life of me, couldn't figure out how to get it to separate the RAW to slot 1 and the JPEG to slot 2. I read through the manual and Friedman's ebook (as well as some googling) but couldn't find an answer specific to the a1.
  2. If it's not still done, would you mind sharing how you (or if you) do dual slot still recording? I am mostly looking to do action photography - both sports and fast moving dogs - and like the idea of both backups and also JPEGs for quicker workflow at times for the non-printed shots.

Thanks in advance for anything you'd like to share!
