Run into an issue. Trying to straight the horizon in a sunset scene and then crop to a panorama view to exclude too much foreground.
I level the horizon using the Angle tool and select done.
Then go to Aspect tool set custom and try to crop.
a) the original photo appears with the corrected angle view shown as well ,superimposed
b) Unable to crop to anything other than what appears to be the camera 4/3 setting.

Must be going wrong somewhere? Never had an issue with ver 9.3

Any clues

Have you unlocked the cropping tool to allow a custom aspect ratio to be used?

Thanks for the help. I think it best to crop then straighten. So I unlocked padlock set to custom arranged the picture as required and the used the ruler to straighten the horizon. All good.
