One more time. I have an image open in PL3 which I am editing. I click on the “crop” tool at the top of my screen, which brings up the horizontal and vertical lines over the image to help me while I adjust the crop. In the right panel, I see the main line for CROP, with three choices below it, CORRECTION, ASPECT RATIO, and the line below them that says “TOOL” with the crop icon next to it.
For ASPECT RATIO, it says “Original”, with a drop-down arrow at the right that allows me to change to change from “ORIGINAL” to “UNCONSTRAINED” and several pre-sets.
I now press and hold the COMMAND key.
Nothing that I can click on changes the setting from ORIGINAL to UNCONSTRAINED.
You want me to “grasp any of the crop controls”. Not sure what you mean by “grasp”, but clicking on everything, one at a time, has no effect on my crop setting. For me, the ONLY way to change it is to go into the drop-down menu.
Maybe I’ve accidentally set something incorrectly, or maybe there is some thing else I’m doing wrong. I’m lost. Nothing works, other than doing it the way I’ve gotten used to doing it.
I have no idea how to do any of this as a “pre-set”. I’m perfectly happy with every image opening with nothing pre-set, and doing it all manually - that’s how I’m learning how to use PL3.
I’m far too stubborn for my own good. I decided that the best way to learn PL3 is to stop using anything else for editing, and it’s working, but slowly. …and the crop setting is just a minor annoyance to me. If it never gets fixed, that’s OK too.
Maybe I should make a screen capture of my window, and then you can suggest what it is that you want me to do.
More questions later, I want to do this one issue at a time.
