Just purchased a lightly used D3 for a project shooting in an extremely low light environment in NYC. My last time shooting a Nikon was in the late 1960's (F1). Mostly Tri-X. I have bought some used manual lenses on Ebay which should arrive in the next couple of days. A buddy lent me a AF Nikkor 24mm 2,8. I put it on the body & the Autofocus worked fine. I shut the body off. When i turned the body on again, it looks like it's now in the "DX" mode, as the FF is unhighlighted in the viewfinder. I may have done something stupid by mistake. Can anyone give me some advice about this. Also is there a best way to load the settings for the manual lenses, once they arrive? Thanks for your time & consideration.

Sorry, just found the fix.
