Lightroom: crop in reference view • disable warning

Dear LR developers, 
may I ask for a "Don't show again" checkbox when cropping images in reference view.

I work a lot in reference view. When I try to crop an image I always get the warning:
"Selecting the Crop Tool will exit Reference View".I know that! It would be nice to have a "Don't show again" checkbox . 
Just like other warnings.

This slows down my workflow since I have to close the warning every time. 

Could you please add that.... and tons of speed in general.


Thanks! 
Dan

Agreed - though I would entirely suppress the dialog box.

It's a nice to have for beginners: But as a LR pro I'd need to opt out.

I just don't think beginners need it - you see Crop drops you out of Reference view, so you understand that's what happens.

Also consider switching from Reference to Before/After. It also drops you out of Reference View, but there's no dialog box of any kind.
