Samyang 12mm + Olympus EM10ii not focus magnifying?

Hi, I just got my hands on a samyang 12mm f2 for my Olympus EM10 Mark ii. I’ve always used lenses with autofocus so I’m completely new to this MF lens! I’ve read on reviews that I can use focus peaking & magnifying with this lens. I’ve made sure to switch the settings on in the MF Assist menu, turned my dial to M (not that it matters?? Usually I leave it on Aperture priority) but still that magnifying box does not come up

Anything I’m doing wrong? TIA!
