Running version 122. Here's the scenario:

Set paper size to 13x19 - portrait. Set print size to 12x18 (so one print per page).

Load 4 different photos - so 4 pages.

From page 1, go into the page editor.

From the cropping tab, crop the photo on page 1.

Stay in the page editor and scroll forward to any other page.

Crop that photo also in the page editor.

Zap - the crop window and the page editor revert to page 1 (but the crop on the new page does take effect)

Here is another small glitch on v122 (also on v121):

If you use additional margins to compensate for different top/bottom margins on cut sheets (i.e. adding a value to the top margin to make it equal to the bottom margin) it messes the manual placement of images making it impossible to move an image to the edge of the bottom margin.

Example:

Cut sheet on cut sheet on IPF8400 with two small images on the page, huge bottom margin, so I add to the top margin to make them equal (check the attached image). After that I want to freehand place the images to make them touch the bottom margin and the (adjusted) top margin. On the page editor I click on the top margin and use CTRL+up-arrow to move it to the uppermost position (works fine), then I click on the bottom image and use CTRL+down-arrow to move it to the bottom and it doesn't work. Actually it moves UP a bit. Dragging the image down does not work either.

If I move the image down BEFORE adding to the top margin it works as expected.

Hi Mel,
I am getting erratic behavior too.
I had two issues.
I forgot and had the crop scissor off and that actually made my print sizes different from 12 x 18 due to my aspect ratio crops in teh Image editor.
I solved that by turning on the crop scissors.
NOW, it shows  what you are explaining, and my guess is that QU's new sorting (Is) is seeing the cropped prints as different sizes from the uncropped (Same as when I had crop scissor off) Then it is resorting.
To prove it, switch your placement mode to the old Optimal Spaced, and it doesn't happen.

Good Catch! Gotta wait for Mike to start his day.

Geraldo,
Good day,
I know this sounds impossible to you and others, but your  screen snap showing the sizes in  mms and fractions of mms make my eyes go glassy.
It's like a person with acrophobia trying to look over the edge of a roof.

I am hoping Terry, Metric Man,  can check the problem for us. If not, got to wait for  Mike to check it.

Thanks for the help in finding these.

I cannot reproduce this problem. I don't have unequal top & bottom margins but did increase the top margin by 23mm and I could move prints on the page anywhere with in the revised printable area.
I tested with A4 paper size and 2 150 x100, prints on the page. I checked with initial spacing of Optimal spaced and Intelli Spaced before moving the images in the page editor.

Subsequent to the above post, Terry, who in truth, is a very good friend and a very smart guy, Skyped me and we got together reproducing the problem.
He took the funny numbers with the mms after them, and told me what to type in the boxes that said ins. after them,.
We did reproduce the problem, and all should be well soon.

I forgot. Now Terry's hat will no longer fit.
