RX10 IV - How to disable focus highlighting?

I arrived in Europe for a short vacation and my RX10 IV decided to start highlighting everything in focus with yellow flashing lines.  I know there is a name for this option, but unfortunately it doesn't come to mind.  I would like to disable it as I find it most annoying when trying to take a picture.

Thanks in advance for any help.

You have accidentally turned the front focus mode wheel to the DMF or MF position. In other words, you've disabled auto-focus.

Yup, the wheel did accidentally wind up on the DMF setting.  Now I know what caused it and how to fix it.  Appreciate the help!

If it's in DMF it will still autofocus but when you turn the focus ring it switches to manual.
