Crop in LR4.1 once crop is changed from original to 1x1, it cannot be reset to custom. When a picture is first displayed dragging the crop handle changes the aspect to custom, after it has been set to 1x1 it cannot be successfully reset to custom. Reset to original and dragging causes the ratio to remain fixed, select custom and drag and the ratio switches to 1x1.

That's because setting it to 1:1 locks the padlock.

Ah, ok, but why does setting it to custom not unlock it?

Don't know, never tried that before. I always just unlock it.
