Change back to the previous way of cropping

Not sure how to explain this but prior to the June update when I cropped an image in ACR I would draw a crop box and if I wanted a different crop I could drag the box. After the June update the box stays put and the image moves. How do I go back to the previous behavior?

 

I've also noticed that selecting the crop tool changes the image view making it much smaller and centering it on the screen. Previous versions just left the image view where you had it. Is it possible to change that behavior back to the previous version?

And I would really want to have the possibility back to see the grid when rotating the image. I often have horizon lines in my images and without a grid or at least a horizontal line it's next to impossible to straighten them out. And no, auto adjustment just doesn't cut it.

The new grid with adjustable transparency is great but I don't see it when I most need it. And thus it is completely useless unfortunately.

Addition: I shot too early - found the possibility of overlaying the grid. 

Next thing I have to find out: How to get a free aspect ratio. One used to be able to just grab one of the middle hooks and change just the position of that border (i.e. tapping the top middle hook and move it down to get a panorama-like aspect ratio). Must be somewhere...

Next additon: Found it. So my issues are resolved...

If you right-click on the image while the crop tool is engaged, there are options to show the overlay and to choose the overlay style. I'm not trying to sell you on the new interface. I'm just pointing out to you that the overlay CAN be activated, and that includes the grid.

10 times slower to finish. Especcially with arrow keys you can go to the next photo and you must to move only with the mouse.

You cant make custom size.Not nice workflow similar with LR, previews version much better and most important FASTER!!!
