Question about Elna Sewing Machines
Do not have manual
The Elnita is the entry level model in the Air Electronic compact series, there is no reverse lever or button. Instead, you stop stitching, turn the stitch length dial back to zero, then keep turning into "negative" area, it should look like this "-- --- ---- -----" on the dial. Turn it back about half way into the negative area and you will get a reverse stitch of about 2.5 or so. Do your reversing stitches, then stop and turn the dial back to original forwards stitch location, and continue sewing.

Unless there is a specific button to do reverse stitching, you could try pressing the foot peddle 'backwards' .. in other words, press with your heel rather than your toe. Some foot peddles are configured this way.

I assume you mean when you wind a bobbin full of thread??
You take the end of thread from your spool through the tension device or an eyelet on top of the machine, then back to the bobbin on the bobbin winder and thread the loose end through a top hole on the bobbin. Click the bobbin in against the stop and press on the pressure foot to start to wind. Hold the top thread for a bit as the bobbin starts to fill and then once it has been covered by a row or two of thread, stop and cut of the loose end from top of the bobbin. Now continue to wind the bobbin until it cuts out as it fills against the stopper. Nudge the thread with a finger tip as it spools onto the bobbin to help get the bobbin filled top and bottom and not just in the middle. (bit like when you coil the garden hose onto the reel, it always wants to go in the middile only and then jams up LOL).
Also a really good idea to place your scissors handle into the top of the thread spool to slow/control it as the thread reels off it. This helps give an even tension on the thread going onto the bobbin which really helps with stitch quality later.

SOURCE: I have a old Elna
Is this the duplex model with the base that fits into a sewing cabinet?
My Elna booklet lists a SP "air electronic" duplex (CL.39), if so, then it would be same stitches as the 38, yellow front panel, 7 built in stitches and automatic knob with blue markings for buttonholing.
Here is the SU manual images for buttonholing, should be exactly the same for the SP.
use buttonhole foot. turn the 3 dials to buttonhole marked in blue (stitch selection, width and length).
Mark length of buttonhol on the material. Place work under foot with the mark in the middile fo the foot, the start being directly below the needle. sew the first side, raise the needle. Turn stitch width dial to 2, blue. Sew a few stitches for bartack. Raise the needle.
Turn stitch width dial to 3 blue. sew the second side. stop just short of the first side. Raise the needle.
turn the stitch width dial to 4 blue. sew a few stitches for bartack. Raise the needle.
Turn stitch width dial to "fastening off stitch" blue dot. Sew a few stitches, holding back the material by hand. Raise needle, lift pressure foot and remove work, triming off threads.
Open the buttonhole with your seam ripper (put a pin across the end to avoid any nasties).
