Problems with focus limiter on X-T3

Just found out that there is a Problem with the implementaqtion of the new focus limiter functionality on X-T3:

If the function is assigned to a dedicated button (in my case R-dial) you can open and choose the custom setting + both presets but it is not possible to change the custom settings.  t do this you have to open the same Setting using the menu...

Not a big deal if you know it, but I was questioning myself quite a bit, as I felt unable to figure out how it works... until i figured out that it just doesn't work

Personally I find the focus limiter implementation not very good in general. It’s annoying that you can’t set the front and back limits individually but have to  to set both whenever you want to change something.

Re: Problems with focus limiter on X-T3

I too found a problem in setting it (I was also accessing it via a saved button) but did manage to eventually by pressing the shutter button instead of the ok button when trying to set A and then B.  I couldn't do it consistently though so I will try instead from the menu.  Glad it wasn't just me.  Not sure how useful I will find it but it will be nice to know I have the option if it works.
