How do you access the settings for the preamplifier in a 6700?

I understand that the 6700 has a built-in preamplifer. However, I have not been able to find how to change the settings for the preamplifier in SmartSDR 2.4.9. 
Any help?

    Go to the Left pullout in the panadapter -> "Ant" ->  "RF Gain"    There is 4 RF Gain selections.

    If you have the 2mLDPA with USB for 2 meters then you also adjust the Pre-Amp in the 2mLDPA on that same menu.

    In the upper left hand corner of your screen where you adjust antennas you will have a choice of rf gain.  SOmetimes I like 10 dB for higher frequencies but usually just leave it at 0 for 80,40 and 20
