How to stop G5xii from zooming beyond optical zoom but still allow digital?

Hi,
I had this same issue with the G7xii and now the G5xii:

When I am zooming, I want it to stop at the end of the optical zoom range and then require me to zoom again if I want to go into the digital zoom range.

The camera does not have a stop at the end of the optical range by default and I always end up going into the digital zoom when I do not want that.

Funny thing is that there is a "stop" at the end of the 1st digital zoom (10x I believe), but not at the end of the optical zoom.

I have searched the settings and I can only find the option to either turn off or turn on the digital zoom but not one that will let me have a "stop" at the end of the optical zoom.

Have a missed a setting? If so, where is it?
Thanks!
Paul
