Where are LR custom crop ratios stored?
« on: February 14, 2016, 12:23:59 pm »

I have some oddball custom crop ratios cluttering up the crop ratio dropdown window.  If I knew what file they were stored in I would take a hex editor and get rid of them.  Are they in .lrcat itself?

That drop-down menu only retains the last five ratios entered. If you don't like the ones that are displayed currently, why not just enter five new ones that are more "simpatico"?

Hi,

Yes, the custom crop ratios are stored in the .lrcat itself. The solution provided by elied is the simplest way to change the custom crop ratios.

However, in case you are interested:

First, I would not recommend trying to change them using a Hex Editor. The .lrcat file is a SQLite Database which can be edited with any SQLite database tool (available free)

The custom crops are stored in the table "Adobe_variablesTable" and the field name is "Adobe_customCropAspects"

You can do things like remove the custom crops if you don't want them to appear at all or even have more than 5

The first attached file show the crop menu with 6 custom crop values and the other file shows how the data can be visualized with the tool "SQLite Expert Personal"
