Help Can't get A7C to toggle between TRACKING AF Modes

I'm trying to set up the camera for action shots with AF Tracking Wide with high shutter speed and committed those parameters to a memory slot on dial.  However I would like to be able to, with a push of a toggle button switch to a flexible tracking spot to allow a more precise selection of target.

I thought I could:

1.  turn on AF Area Registration

2.  Choose the AF tracking area

3.  Hold the FN button down to register the AF small area tracking alternate.  I get a message that af area is registered.

4.  Assign to Custom Key I choose C   Register AF Area Toggle

After completing this, the toggle function toggles to a non moveable small rectangular non tracking mode.

Any suggestions how to get a flexible spot, large tracking as a toggle alternative to the tracking wide?

Thanks!
