The options I see in the Crop Tool for common aspect ratios are no longer the ones I've been looking at and using for many years. Specifically, the options shown below Enter Custom... no longer include panorama aspect ratios such as 2 x 1. Instead, I am seeing 1 x 1.33, 1 x 1.33, 1 x 1.63, 1 x 1.66 and so on.  I believe this was triggered by my entering a custom aspect ratio in the Crop Tool when I was doing some editing on a friend's smartphone photos. I have tried quitting Lightroom and restarting it. I have reset Lightroom Preferences. Neither has worked. Can anyone tell me how to get the default aspect ratios back?

 

I'm running Lightroom Classic 9.4 on a Mac.

You will have to create the custom ratios that you want, and they will replace the ones that are there. I'm curious as to why you are still using LrC 9.4. The current version is 10.1.1. Is t...

I'm curious as to why you are still using LrC 9.4. The current version is 10.1.1. Is there some sort of limitation because of your operating system?

Jim, thanks very much. I get it now. 

As for why I'm still using LR 9.4, yes it's an operating system limitation. I need to upgrade from High Sierra to Mojave or Catalina.
