Looking for help getting tree supports to appear on model

I am using Cura 4.4 with an Ender 3 and PLA.  I am trying to print out the Initiative Trackers shown on the left of the image below.  I turned them on their side so that the curve would have more strength.  Unfortunately, that left a long expanse to cover, and I ended up with stringing, as shown on the right.  I am trying to use Tree supports to prevent this, but every time I slice the file, I am not seeing any supports added.  What setting would influence whether or not supports are added to that lip?

    Always look at your part in *PREVIEW* mode.  Under that make sure "line type" is selected and make sure every box is checked.  That will show you supports.
