Its tricky!  Just like the D710.
You ahve to select OTHER by pressing the * key.

Just setting OTHER simply means you are setting up what that path is, but not actuallyl using it until you mark it with the *.  Good luck

I was able to set the path and it looked like the OTHER path was enabled (on the first men item). The problem is that I left the menu and came back and it was set to NEW again.
