CC-LR's Develop Module (v8.6 for Windows) Radial Filter has no overlay tool

On my Window's 7 systerm, if I open ACR v 8.6 from Bridge and apply the radial filter to an image, I have the option for an overlay that creates a visible guide and handles for seeing and adjusting the effect (similar to those in the gradient filter tool). Cool!
If I use ACR v8.6 from Lightroom’s Develop module, there is a radial filter; however, there is no overlay tool available. (The LR Gradient Filter does have the overlay tool option). Would you activate a similar radial filter overlay tool in the Lightroom Develop module?
If it is available and mine is turned off, please advise me and your service-tech support people on how to turn it on.
Thank you,
Glen Wilson

In Lightroom:

H hides or unhides the Selection Point, Tool and Outline of the tools
O shows or hides the Overlay (if available (eg. Adjustment Brush)
Shift + O changes the overlay color.

In my LR 5.6 on Windows 7, H will show and hide the pins and ellipse but O does nothing in LR as there is no Overlay or Mask display in the way there is in ACR, maybe in LR6?

T might need to be pressed to show the Show Edit Pins option and something other than Never chosen.

Here is what LR shows for the radial filter ellipse outline and handles for whatever the current pin (white circle with a dark circle inside) is with something other than Never set as the Show Edit Pins option:

By golly, you are right, Steve. I could have sworn it was on the radial too.

ACR 8.6 has UI extensions beyond what LR 5.6 has, presumably because it's being continuously updated as part of the cloud licensing and LR 6 will have an updated UI when it comes out, but seeing as we haven't had any LR RCs the last 3 releases the LR team seems overworked so maybe it'll just fall behind.

Thanks,
The H works some of the time. Occasionally, then adjustment will not write to the file. It comes up with: “An internal error has occurred: entity:delete(): Store provider is read-only.” If I restart LR, the problem seems to be resolved for a while.
Thanks again,
