Lightroom: It would be helpful to invert the crop selection so that it drags the box, not the image.

I move between Photoshop Elements and Lightroom daily. It may seem like an issue of silly muscle memory, but the crop selection dragging is inverted between these two platforms and it makes my workflow uncomfortable because I have been dragging crop selections in Photoshop Elements for the past several years. When I drag a selection in Lightroom, as you know, the image drags within the crop selection dotted lines. When I drag a crop selection in Photoshop Elements, the dotted lines are dragged and not the photo itself.

It would be a simple but helpful tweak to be able to choose which selection one wishes to drag when making the crop.

Is there a way to invert the selection dragging direction, kind of like on a video game controller, within a deeper settings menu in either application?
