I've just got Capture NX2 but the cropping tool is driving me nuts!

(1) Sometimes it crops accurately following the selected aspect ratio, other times it crops the width way too narrow - so the photo looks more 4 x 5 (width x height) than my selected 4 x 6. Things seem to go wrong after I use the Picture Control settings...

(2) Also, if I crop my photo then change something (like exposure), the crop disappears!

What's happening, and how do I make NX2 respect my crop aspect ratio!?

I doubt it makes any difference, but I use a Nikon D800E.

For #2, check Edit menu, Preferences, General, Keep All Steps Active In Edit List. Is it checked? If it's not, editing earlier steps will temporarily disable later steps. (But even then, it's only temporary.) Try checking that if it's not already.

I don't really get #1, but something similar may be happening, since picture controls would be edited earlier than any crop is applied which could *temporarily* affect a later crop.

(Of course, most here are going to tell you to get rid of NX2 and use Lightroom.)
