a7S III tracking; set without touching monitor

I've just gotten my a7S III and while in photo mode setting a tracking point and having the camera track that object is simple. In movie mode it appears I have to touch the monitor on the subject I want it to start tracking.

There must be a setting somewhere that allows me to track whatever is underneath the highlighted focus point, right? I've been through the settings so many times they are blurring together.

Can anyone tell me where that option is? I have no desire, nor will I likely have the time or ability, to touch the screen to track a subject while making movies.

Thanks,

Mike
