In the Arm beta the crop tool displays a marker for the center point of the image. The release version does not and I can't find a way to bring it back in any of the Guides settings. What am I missing?
Are you talking about missing reference point in the middle?
Enter free transform (Ctrl + T) then check what is indicated in the Options bar on screenshot below.
OH I'm so sorry, I missed this reply and yes checking that option in the transform tool does indeed bring that center mark to the crop tool. I never would have thought to look there. Thanks! Why it is not accessable in the crop options is a question we can leave for another day 😉
What’s an »Arm beta«?
Could you please post screenshots with the pertinent Panels (Toolbar, Layers, Options Bar, …) visible?
Have you tried with my suggestion above?
The options shown in your ss seem to be the default and they match mine in both the beta and the release.
What are the Crop Tool’s settings (see my screenshot)?
