Saving the Highlights using Custom preset
 
On the Custom presets, what option on the knee helps keep more detail on the highlights (high, medium or low).

I am almost positive it is low. Point your camera at a wal that has a light shining on it that has fall off. now open the iris to a point that zebra patterns start to form on the wall in the most intense areas. Now adjust the knee and you should find that on the low setting the zebra patterns creep back farther. On the high setting they will become more prominent which indicates you are overexposing more.

Good Luck
