I have a crop tool preset I made in landscape orientation to size photos all the same for a data-merged book I do every year. With CS6 I noticed a new and annoying behavior; if I move the crop tool too far to the left, it automatically changes the crop area to portrait. If this is supposed to be a feature, it's a most unwelome one. If my crop preset is landscape, then that's what I want. I'd like to know if there is a way to disable this "feature".
Have you tried changing the Crop tool setting to use classic mode. I don't know if that will do the trick. CS6 Crop tool has been reworked. Many do not like the rework?
Classic mode did it. It's a shame, becasue I was really liking the new crop tool, until I ran up against this issue.
