HIGHLIGHTS NOT IN VIEWFINDER em1 mk2

I noticed this last week, today spent guite some time trying to correct this problem. The LCD displays the highlight ok. It is in the playback photos as well. But the blinkers will not appear in the viewfinder. Used menu D1 and J but still no luck. Tried in Av no luck. So I am thinking what have I enabled which stops this function??? Suggestions please.
Kind regards Mike

Please ignore the above suddenly for no reason
Kind regards Mike.

Since someone else may look here, here is a very clear instruction on making those settings in display & EVF.

Menu I -> Info Settings->Custom1/2 - Add Highlight and shadows


Press the Info button to appropriate number of times to get to the blinkies screen.


I don't use it but I think this should work.
