I have a little problem with the cropping tool in the new CS6 version.
In CS5 I had the oppotunity to choose "Front image" and the crop tool would copy the dimensions from the chosen image.
Now I made a mistake and cropped a picture with the wrong dimensions. Ususally I choose "original ratio", but this time I forgot. Then normally in CS5 I just choose one of the other pictures in my workspace (with the original dimensions) and hit the "front image" button, and then I got back the the picture I cropped in the wrong dimenions, and now I could easily crop it with the right dimensions.
I found another discussion in the forum that answered exactly this question, and it said "Try pressing 'R' in crop mode. It will open Crop Image Size & Resolution window, where you can choose Source: Custom, Front Image, etc."
But when I press "R" in the crop mode nothing like that comes up. Instead the oppotunity to rotate comes up... :-( Not what I was looking for...
What to do?

No, that was apperently the issue, thanks.
But it was actually a little easier in CS5. Because now I have to chose a picture in the workspace with the wanted dimesion, drag an area, save a preset and then I ca go to the other image I wanted to crop, choose the preset an then crop. In CS5 there was a direct button, and I could switch between higth and length, so that the hight dimensions became the length dimensions and so on, a good little feature when working with images in both horizontal and vertical versions.
But well, I gues I'll have to live with that.

Well, quite frankly it seems in CS6 not everything that has been changed has been changed in such a way as to make its use more efficient.
For example changing Path Operations now is a two-click (or click-drag-release) task when it was a one-click-task in CS5.
