This was the period when a heading change of any type might have worked. The PF did not seem to actually select or turn the heading.
Exactly, hence my comment that it's a poor SOP and I don't just mean for instances where immediate action is required - it blurs the PF/PM roles and is not reflected in the FW world of automation.
