In Lightroom 4.3, in the Map module, the circle showing the radius around the center of the map for a selected location has disappeared and I can't figure out how to get it to show again. That's the circle around a location when creating a saved location and identifying the desired radius around it.

Try pressing the O key to toggle the circle Overlay showing/not showing.

Thanks for the reply, but that doesn't seem to work for me. Here's what I did to try out your suggestion:

1. Go to Map module
2. In Saved Locations, I right-click to select a location
3. I click the right arrow to the right of the selected location name. The map changes its center to that location
4. I press the O (letter O, actually lowercase) key. Nothing happens. I press it again. Nothing happens.

A month or so ago, the overlay circle appeared appropriately. Here's what I used to do when it worked:

1. In Map module
2. Click + at Saved Locations to create a new one. A dialogue box comes up with the title New Location. An overlay circle then appeared on the map. I could modify its radius in the New Location dialogue box by moving the Radius bar or typing in a number. The overlay circle's radius then changed based on what I entered.

However, the above no longer works for me, hence my original question. Now I can create a new location but see no overlay circle and if I change the radius, I can't visually see the results of the change.
