As I wrote (and highlighted) in my post ... "Be sure to select "AF-area mode + AF-ON""

That's the whole point of customization buttons, to not just select different AF area modes, but use it to focus at the same time. So that applies to any button you are programing for a focus area selection.

There are several options in the Custom control assignment menu ... selecting a button in the initial graphic menu shows the options available for that particular button. Select "AF-area mode + AF-ON", then arrow over, and a list of AF areas are displayed for you to select. Always press OK after selecting an option.

Also, it is beneficial (and I believe important for simplicity) to set a8 in the "Custom settings menu" to "OFF", which disables shutter button focusing….

I agree 100% with those points.
