Before doing anything on my set, I made note of what my current settings are. Then I went through the settings.
And what did I find?
Some settings have either changed the scale range, the name of the setting, or I can't find them at all.
Have I lost my mind? Doing something wrong? All help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
