    I have the 2 front function buttons mapped as DOF preview (lower button) and Virtual Horizon level indicator (upper). I need to remember to use them more.

    I also need to learn to program U1 and U2 on the function dial and use them for scenes like watch photography and astrophotography.

    Picture playback on the front function button and single point focus on rear function button.

    Pv is set as Preview, but I never use it. I used to have it set for single point focus, but I tend to default to that, so I just changed it to center my focus point. It is less awkward than using the little textured button on the back that I had programmed for that. It snaps the focus point back to center. My F1 is set to use with the dial to go from Fx to Dx crop mode. I tend to forget to use the buttons on the front of my camera.
