7D Mk II Macro auto focus help needed

Hi
I wonder if this little issue of mine can be solved.
When I owned a 30D, I seem to recall that I had it set up so that all the focus points that had achieved focus would go red.
This was really useful when photographing butterflies as it would help me to get the camera perpendicular to the wing by getting as many points lit up as possible.
Is this possible on the 7D MkII?
Thanks

Hi Roger.
Yes I believe the solution is to select 65 point auto selection zone and one shot AF, I just tried it on a wall outside and it seemed to work, oblique angle and only a few points lit, parallel and all points lit, it might work in large zone AF and zone AF as well but I did not think to test these, I just nipped outside in the cold in a T-shirt so I didn’t hang around! :rolleyes:

Cheers, Graham.
