Sigma fp and CINE vs STILLS settings. Baffled.

So, I've had this awesome camera for quite some time now, and while I like the UI and switches, there is one element that I don't get. Maybe I am not understanding the STILLS vs CINE intent, but if I set CINE to be manual shutter, then flipping the top switch to STILLS should preserve the Av mode I had no? In my experience it does, not (same as if I custom-store CINE settings onto a custom mode I had for STILLS). The only thing that gets 'stored' per shooting mode is the QS UI. If I have to custom-store CINE to a different custom mode, then the CINE vs STILLS top camera switch loses its value in my view.

I keep that switch on Stills all the time; sorry I can't be of help to you.  If you post your question in the DPR Sigma Camera Talk forum there are several there that might be able to help.
