The flight director will display the flight attitudes the autopilot would fly if it were engaged.
If you know how to fly the autopilot, next time you select AP, also select FD so you can watch how the FD works.
Then deselect the AP and leave the flight director engaged. Manage the FD modes the same way you would manage the AP when it is engaged.
Follow the flight director V bars with the airplane symbol.
Hope this helps.
