I know how to create and save a custom crop, but I don't know how to give it a custom name or where these settings are store on disk.

For example, one of the built-in crops is listed as "16 x 9 1920 x 1080". I assume the "16 x 9" is the ratio and "1920 x 1080" is its name.

I would, therefore, like one of my custom crops to be listed as "3.359 x 2.382 Name", where "3.359 x 2.382" is my ratio and "Name" is my chosen name.

The interface doesn't appear to offer a user name, so does anyone know where theses crop settings are stored? Perhaps they can be edited externally.

No custom naming, sorry Mike.

That ratio is an unusual case, where it's a standard screen resolution, so they've added that as extra information.
