Improve ‘crop image’ function
Currently when you wish to crop an embedded or linked image, clicking the crop button makes the cropping interface appear over the image.
When this happens, illustrator has already applied some (seemingly random) degree of cropping to the image.
This is super annoying if you only want to crop one edge of the image as you have to return the other three edges to the uncropped position.
Also if you are zoomed in so far as to not be able to see all the edges of the image, you crop the edge you are looking at without realising illustrator automatically cropped the edge which is out of view. It is not uncommon to perform many other edits, before zooming out to realise half your image is missing and having to undo all the way back to the crop.
The automatic crop has never cropped an image in a way that makes sense for me, and i dont understand why they’ve gone to the extra effort of incorporating an auto crop that wastes more time than it saves.
Please fix this or enlighten me as to the value i am unable to see.
It never happened to me, strange. Can you provide a file that has this behaviour?
This might be a bug.
