I feel like an absolute moron-- I have got to be missing something incredibly obvious. I have looked to other posts/tutorials, but don't see this addressed.
I am used to (in CS 3, 4, 5) simply placing an image and then grabbing a handle to crop out the parts I don't want to see. In CS6, it seems the behavior is changed (or that mine is hosed), because no matter what I do, I can't do a simple dragging of a handle to crop; I aways get resizes and/or movement. This is driving me slightly mad!
Any help appreciated!

Also - make sure this is turned off with no documents open to stop it happening in new documents.
On current files that it is happening you can change the settings with nothing selected to make it default for new frames.
Already created frames will have to be treated separately.
