I tried and checked all that. I think there is no way to do this using the  "dials".

In Topic: Setting manual focus to infinity

Define "infinity"!

Infinity in a hand held camera is normally taken to be the maximum the camera can achieve. Obviously I'm not trying to take a picture of the Big Bang Background Radiation.

Long time since i have been involved with infinity focusing so i don't know if things have changed, at one time a lens would focus past the infinity point to allow for expansion of the lens in hot weather,under normal use the lens would require a slight turn back to achieve infinity.

What I'm asking is "how can I tell that I have rotated the focus ring to its maximum". I have not seen anything in the D3500 display that even changes as I move the focus ring. On onder cameras the focus ring would stop at min and max and there was information on the lense to show the approximate distance (the infinity symbol was one of them).

Pressing the "i" button works but the multi selector rocker arrow does not move the focus to the ISO dial.
