Where is the "Enter Custom..." option from the old Lightroom and how do we get it back (see attachments)? I like to make my photos 1080x1080 for Instagram and was able to do this in the LR Classic version.

It is truly confounding. Even from very early Photoshop days you could input custom numbers for the aspect ratio. Lightroom Classic CC lets you do it. I am using that even though Lightroom CC would be better overall for me, simply because I need to make many different SPECIFIC aspect ratios on a regular basis.

Is this topic really 2 years old.... Very disappointing the minute I hopped on Lightroom cc for the first time. Why am I going to pay a monthly subscription to the latest and greatest when something like a basic function has gone unaddressed for two years...

This is really terrible.I need to exact - crop photos for official IDs in 7:9 and I have to use free online Photopea tool to do this. Don't you feel embarrassed, Adobe?

They want you to have to keep purchasing the desktop version of Lightroom to use this feature. $10 more a month for them. Classic Adobe

with all of this cloud stuff, we should be able to define a list of custom aspect ratios and have them available across all instances of lightroom; whether it be at home in front of the PC, on my phone or ipad. or even browser based from a different computer. Its a bit ridiculous that this hasnt been fixed at this point.

This is a great idea, Brandon! This should totally already be a thing.

And in a smart app, this list of these custom aspect ratios should be configurable in the preference panel to let the user decides what ratios should appear in the UI (as LR already propose for color profiles).

What an absurd oversight on the part of Adobe! This is so frustrating and may prove to be too much of a problem for me in my print work flow to continue using CC.

6x7 is an absolutely classic aspect ratio in photography used by many professional cameras.
Not for Adobe though.
Please bring back the custom ratio, or at least add the 6x7 option.
Your paying customers will thank you it.
