Hi Team,
Issue on MacBook pro. I was able to copy the Aspect Ratio / Crop shape from an image (horizontal rectangle) and pasting the settings to another image. I just updated my Lightroom Classic and Copying Crop / Aspect Ratio is NOT Pasting to another image like it used to. See video I uploaded for reference.
Any help appreciated.

When you sync/copy a crop's aspect ratio from a landscape to a portrait photo or vice versa, LR will automatically rotate it to match the target photo's orientation. For example, here's what happens when copying the crop from the left to the right photo:

There's no way to stop LR from doing that. However, you could use the Copy/Paste commands of the Any Crop plugin, which doesn't rotate the aspect ratio:

Thank you for your help. I'm not into adding pluggins. I found a different solution. I cropped one new image from the collection and copied and pasted the crop. It worked!

Thanks again

I have to ask please. How do you copy and paste a crop? Please provide steps in how this is done. Then you can 'paste' that crop into another image? This is news to me as I've never seen it done. tia, Ken

At lower left of Develop are buttons Copy and Paste. You can also use standard key shortcuts Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V respectively. Copy with a chosen source image active, opens a dialog where you can select which aspects of this particular image's current editing you will want to transfer. Any aspect left un-checked here, is going to be left alone on the target image, when you later Paste what you have copied.

Currently there may be a number of aspects (other than crop) checked. For convenience there are buttons to check all or to check none. The latter button is a good idea here. Then you can put a checkmark against whatever aspects of cropping you want to transfer onto another image. The main Crop option refers to position in the image, angle, size, shape - everything - though when the source and destination images are of different orientations, the result is a bit non-obvious. If you check only aspect ratio, and/or only straighten angle, without the main Crop option checked - you are copying only that stuff across without imposing the same position in the image, or the same size.

 

Then you highlight another image, or several, and click Paste. If AutoSync is active, all the highlighted images receive that update - if not, only the most-highlighted current active image does.

You can Copy/Paste the crop to one photo at a time or use the Sync Settings command to copy the crop to multiple photos at once. With either command, when the settings window opens, click Check None and then check the Crop box. See here for details:
