Apple will only "look into this further" if it comes to the attention of Apple Engineering. Only way for that to happen is to call AppleCare with any bugs that are easy to reproduce after the Aperture update. 800-275-2273.

Turning off screen proofing worked for me, as well. But I have just noticed that the height and width settings in preset cropping options seem to be reversed. The height of the crop window is equal to the width setting and vice versa. The same is true when I try a custom crop. Have others noticed this as well? I am running Snow Leopard 10.6.8.

Did not need to turn off screen proofing as letting aperture run over night cured 1/3 black area problem (i don't know why) but i now have same problem as above. The height of the crop window is equal to the width setting and vice versa. The same is true when I try a custom crop. This is only with portrait/vertical photos. SL 10.6.8

I experienced a similar problem. Portrait oriented images were being "cropped" in the viewer window whenever I wanted to use the alignment or cropping tools. The image was intact but the top 50% or so was grayed out. I trashed my Aperture preferences file (Users/your name/Library/Preferences/Aperture/com.apple.aperture.plist) and this seemed to cure the problem. It seems that the update for one reason or another corrupts the plist file.

I too am have the same issue, blanked top 3rd of image when cropping (sort by turning off proffing) and the crop orieantation not the same as the imge, which is a huge issue for me as it really slows down my workflow.

Great! Trashing the plist resolved the blank top 1/3 of the image issue for me too.

Same issue here, off screen proofing worked to fix. Crop also preset reversed.

Deleting the plist seemed to correct the problem for me as well. Note that it does delete existing preferences, so those will need to be reset.

Dragging .plist file to desktop for both Lion and Snow Leopard made no difference: still crops contra expectations. Never have on screen proofing on but toggled it to sate my curiosity.

Deleting the PLIST file made things worse for me. I'm running 10.7.2.
Whether it was the direct cause or not, after deleting the PLIST file, my files began to all reset their crops to the incorrect way they were looking during export. I noticed that exported images were not matching the crops I have defined, which led me to this discussion thread.
I immediately quit Aperture to stop this, as I have 160,000 files in my library, and the last thing I want is for them to all have their crops set incorrectly!
Another odd thing I noticed was that the files that had been rotated show the image rotated without the edges cropped parallel and perpendicular to the screen. This is the first time I've ever seen this in Aperture. Normally, a rotated image will auto crop to fill the image to keep its edges square to the screen.

It worked for me as well. A big thanks!

What exactly, deleting PLIST or just On screen proofing Off? I'm really scared with A Fisher Issue.
Currently Being ModeratedOct 17, 2011 11:57 AM (in response to A Fisher)
@A Fisher, have you tried turning off Onscreen Proofing in the View menu? Also, have you made a backup and gone through the Troubleshooting Basics?
@Radek - deleting the plist simply resets your preferences back to default. The file is recreated when you open Aperture again. Onscreen Proofing allows you to look at your images with different color profiles. Having said that, I would start by toggling off Onscreen proofing if it is on.
Currently Being ModeratedOct 17, 2011 12:31 PM (in response to shuttersp33d)
I'm not using Onscreen Proofing. It's off.
I have escalated this matter with Apple senior technical support. I was on the phone with them for over an hour today. They can recreate one of the two issues I'm having. I've sent them some screen shots and sample images, and they're analyzing the situation.
I do have a backup, but my two main libraries consist of over 160,000 images, so doing a restore is a multi-day ordeal. Right now I'm stuck in the water with images that need to get out today
If you are reading this and are concerned, I suggest that you stick with 3.1.3 until these probelms are are resolved. 3.1.3 was very stable and predictable for me.
