Boss GT-8 Expression pedal problem

My gt8 expression pedal seems to by default work as a wah when it's on and a volume pedal when it's not. The problem I have with this is that when I use the wah sometimes when I press it down I accidentally touch it off without realizing it, so when I pull it back off I lose my sound as it is in volume pedal mode.

I was thinking I could solve this by programming the pedal to disable the volume function but this still doesn't get rid of the problem of it switching off my wah. Also I don't know how to program the deactivation of the volume pedal.

All suggestions welcome,

One thing to do is an EXP pedal calibration, (somewhere in the system settings), this also calibrats the pressure needed to active the EXP pedal switch (since it is not a physical switch but an extension of the EXP pedal range).
If your EXP pedal switch is Globally set to control the WAH/FV, there is also a system setting to either change that or set it to patch/by/patch setting instead.
