Steps to Reproduce:
- Import a photo.
- After import, apply "Enter Custom..." preset in the "Crop Ratio" dropdown under "Quick Develop". I choose "960x420" (I'm thinking in pixels).
- Now, "960x420" is present into all "Crop Radio" dropdowns as a preset (kinda) in this catalog.
- Switch to the "Develop" module and switch the "Crop Overlay (R)" to ON.
- The "Aspect" ratio is set to the "960x420" that I set above and the "Lock" icon is locked.
- Unlock the aspect ratio and change the crop.
- As if you were playing around with the crop to get something better.
- Reselect "960x420" from the "Aspect" dropdown.
- As if you decided to return to that preset because you're manual crop didn't look good.
- Switch back to the "Library" module.

Actual Result:
- The "Crop Ratio" dropdown in "Quick Develop" now reads "Custom".

Expected Result:
- It should read "960x420".

- I'm not 100% sure if this is a bug or an intended behavior that's just a little confusing.
- I understand the logic of why Crop Ratio changes back to "Custom" (since the crop *was* customized/changed in the Develop module).
- However, because LR is so good with managing presets and keeping track of changes, it feels like LR should realize that the 960x420 preset was reapplied in Develop and carry that over in the Library module.
- But maybe I'm wrong about that :-) Maybe LR thinks of that 960x420 more as a "Favorite" instead of a "Preset". So it just treats it more as a "remembered setting" instead of something that has a deeper connection in the catalog and to the images its been applied to.
