Settings for Simrad ap24 autopilot

I have forgot to switch autopilot off after getting on a dock and when i did return to boat later alarm was on. And after that autopilot was not working any more. I manage to make wok it again with reset to factory settings.
And now autopilot is not strong enough and very slow in reacting.
I was trying to find out from manual what settings must i check to get better reaction.

Can you give me short instructions what to do, pleas?

If this is still an issue...

Go into the manual and you'll find the procedure for changing how the pilot responds at different boat speeds -- how quickly the rudder is moved and how far. I did it about a month ago but I cannot recall the exact procedure. It's in one of the settings menus. The default settings move the rudder very slowly as I recall.
