Faster arp without time signature change?

So I just picked up my OP-Z for the first time in a loong time but I’m stuck almost immediately.
I’m trying to have a simple arp going up, so I punch in the notes, stretch them over the whole pattern and adjust the speed (green dial on blue lights).
Now, the first 2 settings are just slow straight patterns but after that I only get jumpy 3rds time signatures.
I like the straight ones but I want them to go faster. I checked the manual and it says the green dial is for speed but the green dial seems to do the yellow dials job in making different styles.
Am I going crazy? How do I just speed the arp up without getting into squished 3rds territory?
