Lightroom CC: Crop - custom aspect ratio does not work

When cropping, I switch from Original aspect ration to Custom, then I drag crop area on the image but it still behave like Original. When I hover my cursor over crop settings, it switches to Original aspect ratio itself. I found no way how to perform free cropping.

I'm using the Lightroom CC Classic, and I'm having the same problem! Lock just keeps the ratio the same when dragging out your crop, it doesn't lock it from being changed. I use this heavily and this should be fixed asap!

Did you find a solution? I'm having the same problem.

This thread aligns with what I'm trying to do. I can unlock the constraint on aspect ratio and arrange the crop as desired, but I don't see a way to enter a custom ratio numerically, e.g. for a social media page image.
