Please, make it possible, at least in LR6 , that i can make a crop in the crop tool in every possible size, like maybe 5,6 cm x 3,2 cm. Some of my customers want my pictures in real special sizes/crops and i have always use Photoshop for just cropping. This is always a lot of unnecessary trouble. Thanks for listening. And btw. please let me buy LR6 in a normal way, not only as a CC version. Thanks even more for this :-)

I don't understand your request.

The Crop Tool crops in Aspect Ratio. Export creates size. Lightroom's crop tool can already create any ratio you want via the Custom option. Export can create any size you want. You already have a far superior tool for cropping in Lightroom than in Photoshop.

Go into Lightroom crop module and choose custom crop 7x4 ratio. Crop the photo the way you want, then upon export, choose the long size to be 5.6cm.

Thanks for being helpful ! I know these possibilities. But, if i have to make a crop in a spezial size for my customer, and i would like to decide which part of the picture will "survive". If i would use the export tool i can not decide what part of the picture i will get at the end. If i use the crop tool , i cannot write the exact size in mm or cm or inch , i would like to get at the end. I can just use any kind of aspect ratio. So, i have to find a way to get my cm whishes of my customer in to a aspect ratio But that`s not helpful for everyday use. In Photoshop i can write the size in cm, mm ext..... and then use the crop tool and move this around in the picture to decide which part i would like to send my customer. That`s totally different from the lightroom behavior. Am i wrong?

You crop first to choose the look that you like. Then upon export, you choose the size that you like. That's the way crop tool work.
If you want to, you can go to Lightroom crop custom ratio and enter 5.6x3.2 and assume that the value you enter is 5.6cm x 3.2cm but Lightroom has hide the "cm".

You are wrong, and clearly do not understand the Lightroom crop/export process. You were also wrong about not being able to buy Lightroom 6 "the normal way".
