I am trying to match the crop between two photos (modern and historical photos), and the Reference View would be the perfect tool for this--if it allowed cropping while viewing a reference photo. I can't figure out why cropping is not an allowed action while in Reference View. It would be useful if all develop settings, including cropping, were available in Reference View.

The work-around is to use Secondary Display::Loupe Locked, which was always available even before Reference View was added to LR.
