Set arnold overrides option not displaying

Hello!

I'm working with Maya 2018 with Arnold 5. I'm trying to create an absolute override for Primary Visibility on my object. With the render collection and mesh selected, I right click Primary Vis and I don't see any 'create relative/absolute override' option in the drop down list. I updated Arnold last week and for some reason this keeps happening after the update. I try to drag the attribute to the Render Setup Property Editor and that doesn't work either (I can't drag and add).

It's very much a coin toss. Every time I open the file, the option may or may not be there. For the scene I'm currently working on, I restarted 3 times and it's still not there, unfortunately.

Is there another way to create an override? Do you have any idea why it would load this way?

Thank you!

I have the same issue as above. Previously you could select a collection/object within a layer, then right-click Primary Viz in the Att Ed and chose Create Absolute Override for Visible Layer from the AE. What is the method now if that is missing??????

Is there a visible render layer? Create Absolute Override for Visible Layer is there if a render layer (not the master layer) is marked visible in Render Setup.

This answer requires more understanding of the problem imo....
