Panasonic lumix G5 - manual focus

I've just bought a G5 but cannot find out how to make the focus ring on the lens manually focus the image. I suspect it may be something to do with the settings but cannot suss it out. Anyone any ideas?

Switching to manual focus is done in the menu. I think it is in the custom menu under AF+MF

Duh! Why didn't I think of this before? I've just looked on YouTube and found a vid explaining that you have to go into the quick menu and look for focusing types. And guess what - it works! Thanks for the response mikehit - I'd already tried the custom menu without success, I didn't realise the quick menu provided shortcuts.
