Lightroom: Can't expand crop size when displayed crop angle is 0.00

I reproduced the initially described issue!



Can't expand the right bottom corner. As you see the angle is 0.00. What I did for that? I rotated the image and then rotated it back to 0.00. Maybe it's something like 0.000000000000001 and it doesn't work. But user see that it's 0.00 and it should work!

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Crop angle bug.

You've precisely identified the bug: After rotating, LR has set the internal setting CropAngle to a value less than 0.005.  The angle displays as 0.00, but the non-zero internal angle prevents you from fully adjusting the size of the crop.

Here's a screen capture illustrating the bug: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/21811200/crop-bug.2017.06.30.mov. At the end, I show that the internal CropAngle value is 0.001337, which gets rounded to 0.00 in the Crop tool.

The workaround is simple, once you know it: Either double-click on the slider pointer, or click on the numeric angle and type 0 followed by return.

In the original topic, Dmitry suggested a fix: When the displayed crop angle is 0.00, then internally the crop angle should be set to exactly 0.  More precisely in Lua:

if math.abs (cropAngle) < 0.005 then cropAngle = 0 end

This provides a form of "gravity" with the 0 angle.
