XR18 - Effects to Monitor Mix

I'm new to the XR18.  I'm using the X-Air iPad app to control the mixer for live sound.  I can't figure out how to place the effects into the monitor mix (aux outs) as well as the mains.   I can get them through the mains - just not the monitors.

We want to send the FX return (not the send) to the monitors. I can't tell if that's what your screenshot is showing (I think it is). Highlight on of the FX returns to be sure. Here is a screen shot of X-Air-Edit

Push the button for the Aux bus you want to add FX to (below the big Main LR button on the lower right).

Then push up the fader for the FX you want in that bus. Push Main LR to return to normal mixing.

Re: XR18 - Effects to Monitor Mix

Thanks for the response Dave.  I'm still having issues. I think my iPad screen is a little different from what you're describing.  Here's what I see:

it can't be that difficult - not sure what I'm doing wrong.  I have the bus sends set to Post EQ and the effects sends set to Post .
