Sharing a group folder with an external user

I am trying to share a folder in a Group with an external user.  I have enabled Anonymous sharing in the Office 365 Admin portal.  However, when I try to share the folder, the option to create an anonymous link is greyed out.  I have read all the threads about this that I could find, but nothing seems to help.

 

Thanks in advance.  We just need to share a folder of pictures with an external web designer.

If you can share individual file then try making a zip file instead?

This is actually the best response, because anonymous sharing in Groups is extremely difficult by design:
