G16 aperture priority mode

Can someone explain to me how to set the aperture in Av mode?

 

A book I read says to put the mde in Av and then turn the control dial but turning the control dial does nothing at all on my camera.

I think you press on it rather than rotate it. Try pressing beside the Tulip or Lightning bolt.

You turn the dial on the front of the camera below the shutter button to change the aperture in Av mode. 

 

In Tv mode the same dial controls the shutter speed.

So they've added that dial since when my G9 hit the market. That will be a handy improvement.
