Lightroom mobile: Doesn't sync the crop factor/ratio

When I've cropped images on iPad and return to LR desktop, the images have been cropped - but the selected crop factor (e.g. 4:3, 16:9) has not been saved. So when I go in to make refinements to the crop, the crop is not locked to that aspect ratio as it should be.

Click the lock icon before you edit the crop.

Ah yes, you are quite right, on closer inspection it DOES sync the ratio, but defaults to unlocked so as soon as I touch the crop it loses the ratio. Locking it when I first open the picture prevents this.

I would still suggest to Adobe that if a crop ratio has been selected on LR Mobile, it should open as locked by default.

I have encountered an issue where I saved my files in a 16:9 ratio which synced with the desktop, but with a 1 pixel error on each file, meaning they would save to 1599x600 pixels, regardless of the crop being locked or not, regardless of the resize to fit and don’t enlarge options. Has anybody else encountered this issue ?
