New to this latest version... What is driving me absolutely insane using this new version is the crop tool. In older versions it defaulted to the last dimensions used. This was helpful when working with a large number of photos which needed to be cropped to the same dimensions. Now, I'm having to re-enter the dimensions each time I'm switching photos. I do know there's a work-around by making a template in the size I'm needing to crop everything to, dragging and flattening the layers, etc. But this has it's issues, as well, because I'm having to save each file after flattening, and re-opening a new template. Am I missing something? Because surely Adobe wouldn't intentionally make it impossible to retain crop dimensions between photos? Unless their purpose in making this new version was to make it a million times less attractive to users?
