Focus distance display - keep on?

When in MF - Is there any way to keep the focus distance displayed on the screen, or bring it up without changing focus?

Thanks

Hi Doug...........

On an A1 it's in "Customizing On - Screen Displays" - 04 [Focus] Focus Distance Display - 02 On (ALWAYS).

Guess it'd be similar on a XL H.

The custom display menu that Chris refers to didn't make it into the XL H series until the XL H1S / H1A.
