Camera: SX10IS, with  GM1.01A  firmware
CHDK version: sx10-101a-0.9.9-1284.zip
How I load CHDK: Manual, after starting camera

When CHDK is loaded, camera's OSD shows 'DNG' and pics are recorded in both .DNG & .JPG - so far, so good.
(Is my SX10 part of Canon's S series?) When I press the FUNC/SET 1x, the CHDK OSD 'elements' dissapear, but when I take a picture, the image is still captured in both DNG and JPG.

Question: Is there a 1-button way of toggling off / on the RAW/DNG capability without shutting down/restarting the camera? The only way I know to shut off the raw/dng ability is to shut down the camera then restart it - not a very convenient or versatile way of switching between the camera's native jpg and CHDK's RAW/DNG formats for saving images.

You can turn DNG on or of in the CHDK menu. There is also a shortcut key, which varies depending on your camera model. You don't need to restart the camera.

Suggest http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/CHDK_User_Manual
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Got It!   On my SX10IS,

1) While in <ALT>,
2) Click on 'DELETE' =  3rd button below ON/OFF [POWER]. 

Image capture will be in jpg only, RAW capture will temporarily be suspended.
Repeat steps 1) and 2) to toggle / turn RAW capture back on. 

Thanks to all for the tips on finding this!
