Lightroom CC: Ability to set a particular Custom crop ratio

Is there a way to set a particular custom crop aspect ratio in NEW Lightroom CC (not classic) other than those built in as presets. I can select "Custom" and move "crop box" around to any aspect/crop, but it gives no feedback on crop size. Bottom line: I can't see how to enter in or specify a specific ratio (as is allowed in CC Classic or PS). Can anyone help? Can it be done in the new Lightroom CC?

You can't set a custom crop ratio in CC numerically at the moment, but I'll switch this to a feature request.

This is a really important feature for enabling exporting to different social media and publishing platforms in a ready to go format.  I keep an aspect ratio file with the numerical values for each platform I publish to and I cut and paste these into LR Classic prior to export - this is a major barrier to using LR CC as I can't see a way to enter these numerical aspect ratios?

I am really surprised that you still can't do this in lightroom cc. It is awfully clunky to have to open the image in photoshop just to do a simple crop. Really slows down the workflow. Online stores, websites, you need to be able to come up with particular aspect ratios that are non-standard.

I've bought more space for my pictures and try to switch to the new Ligthroom program.
At the same time, I had this problem that I can not preset the image format as I can in Lightroom clasic.
If this is not changed, I have to go to the old program. I use a picture format 1: 2 everyday
I can not even see some numbers / goals that show my image format.
It's too bad!

Why does lightroom CC lack so many basic settings such as the above (the ability to enter custom aspect ratio) ? IIt's ike they have been deliberately left out and I don't understand why?

Why isn't this SUPER IMPORTANT feature available yet?
