How can I change "crop overly" for a different cropping. In the old version (LR 5) it was by selecting letter "o" several times. Now I installed the new version (LR CC) and it doesn't work in that way. Any ideas?

Lightroom CC is not 'the new version of Lr5'. Lightroom Classic is. Lightroom CC is an entirely new application that still lacks a lot of functions that Lightroom Classic has.

I would love to migrate to Lightroom CC from Lightroom Classic CC but there's one thing stopping me: I can't cycle through crop overlays! Ones such as the golden ratio were very useful to me, and I don't want to only use the rule of thirds overlay. Please implement the crop overlays from Lightroom Classic CC, I would love to use Lightroom CC if they were there!

Why aren't crop overlays an option in Lightroom CC? They are in PS and apparently in LR Classic.This option has been available for many years, yet my current subscription doesn't allow me to access this tool. I get only a Rule of Thirds and no other options.
