LR 5: Recently I accidentally created a crop size that was completely unusable. So I thought, no problem, I will just delete it - WRONG!

Under the crop tool, you can add a custom crop size, but there is NO way to delete the custom crop size. After calling tech support to get help with this, they confirmed there is NO way to delete a custom crop size preset. WHY would Adobe allow you to add a preset but not delete it?!?

For that matter, ANY preset a user creates should, the user should be able to delete or change it as well. Adobe, ad this functionality to ALL user presets!!!

The Crop list isn't a preset but a MRU Most Recently Used list of aspect ratios. It isn't a recipe for placements and sizes on images - which would be more analogous to a preset.

It works like this: when you put one in they accumulate until there are five user-entered presets. Then when you put in a sixth the first one drops off. FIFO.
