Re: E-M1..I've lost the touch screen AF positioning icon.

But not the four corners with the little hand, I get magnification instead.
Sorry to ask again, but what Info screens do you have enabled in Menu *D, Info Settings, LV-Info? I have all 4 enabled (ticked) in mine.

Just another thought. You say you have "Magnification by Touch with the size slider on the right & magnify touch point at the lower right." There should be an icon on the left when in that mode that should be [ ] OFF. Press it & it will turn off Magnify. Now you should have one of 3 options for Touch, Touch to focus, Touch to fire shutter or OFF (it will be there depending on which Info screen is in use as a screens with no details or level won't show it) & touching that will cycle through those options. Let us know what that is now as that was part of Version 2.0 firmware update. It didn't have the [ ] OFF function to turn off Magnification before (as far as I know).

Here is a quote from Firmware 2.0
The level gauge and histogram can now be displayed during magnified frame display. The Touch Off icon was added to magnified frame display.
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
