Pressing O will toggle the overlays.

Are you sure your suggestion works in Publisher? Your link is for Photo.

I think that warzmanda is right, the Crop tool in Publisher misses all the features of Crop tool in Photo. What's the shame, it is crippled even in Photo persona! Yak? I can create cropping rectangle without such a "special" tool.  BTW, the Crop tool in Designer deserves those features too. This way they are just a shortcut to creating cropping rectangle and not crop tools.

You're right. I missed that.

But that function is available in the Photo Persona of Publisher, assuming you own Photo.

Note that the Crop Tool in the  Publisher Persona is a vector crop tool. I'm not sure how useful a rule of thirds overlay would be in that Persona, given how cropping is done with that tool in that Persona.

But perhaps I just haven't found that need, yet. Thanks for pointing out my error.
