ok....follow up...I did figure out that one FS can turn on mulitple...easy...but where I want options is sometimes I just want to single out the efx used in the bunch....so can it look like this:
FS1 = Comp
FS2 = DIST
FS3 = Delay
FS4 = the combo of the 3 listed above

You cannot assign more than one FS button to control the same effect. But as you stated, you can assign several effects (and the amp) to one FS button to control all of them at the same time. So, it is not possible to do what you said at this moment.

actually, there is a workaround if you don't mind using losing stereo output and one effects block. what you would have to do is put all three effects into line and then put a effects loop block right before it using a patch cable just go from the fx out directly to FX in and then put that on one switch so when this turns off, it turns off all of the fx right afterwards as well

Another thing to consider is that the FS asignment operates as a toggle with respect to the assigned FX. It doesn't turn them ON or OFF depending on whether the FS is lit or not - it turns them to their opposite state. So, given the desire to operate each FX separately AND as a group, each press of a FS (whether the single or group FS controlled by the FX Loop suggestion) will turn the assigned FX ON if it was OFF, or OFF if it was ON. This may defeat the purpose even with the FX Loop idea.
You can verify this by creating a preset with an FS assigned to two FX. Save the preset with one of the assigned FX ON and the other OFF. Now, pressing the FS will swap their states - not turn both ON if the FS light is on, or both OFF if the FS light is off.

Another thing I tried - and this won't always work due to DSP limits but...I put the identical delays one is assigned to the Multi FS and one is set to its own FS and set it like this
FS1 = Comp
FS2 = Multi (Dist / Chorus / Delay)
FS3 = Delay
But again, this way will probably only work with low DSP requirements.
