That`s all in the Operation Manuel of the Pocket Camera.
You can download it at the BM Support side

There are two options for focus assist:
* focus peaking
* colored lines

To setup go into the camera menu.
-> MONITOR -> LCD (page 3) -> Focus Assist Type
-> LCD/HDMI/Viewfinder (page 1) -> set Focus Assist OFF/ON individually for each screen

To turn on/off for camera LCD:
-> on screen HUD (icon in the upper left corner) -> second icon with the human outline
set ON/OFF and focus assist level (intensity)

Map one of the function buttons (F1 - F3)
To setup go into the camera menu.
-> SETUP (page 2) ->
I have set F3 to toggle / cleanfeed / LCD + HDMI + Viewfinder
Saying "Thx for help!" is not a crime.
