That allows you to set the focus point but not in the way I meant. In Nikonscan
you can click on a point in the preview and use that as the focus point
for the focussing system. So it's an XY location in the image not the Z
direction. Ed may not have implemented it because AFAIK it's only available
in the Nikons.
PS Another thing I wish Vuescan did was report back how many frames there
are in a strip. Vuescan reads the information - for instance if you tell
it to scan frame 5 in a 4 frame strip, it will scan frame 4. But it isn't
displayed anywhere. Yesterday I was trying to scan a strip which was 5
and a half frames (the camera tried to squeeze another frame on the film
and partially overlapped the last frame). I ended up having to turn the
strip around and scan the frame as frame 1 rather than frame 5. No big
deal but it would be nice if Vuescan reported somewhere how many frames
were detected by the scanner.
