Can't do a 2 x 3 aspect crop in LR.

I don't know whether this is a new problem, or just something that I never noticed before. 2 x 3 / 4 x 6 is In the list of crop ratios, but using it actually produces 3 x 2. which is my camera's native aspect. I've tried all the variants I could think of as custom settings, but there seems to be no way to replace the 2 x 3 setting (which is actually 3 x 2). Now I know I can either do it by eye in LR by not using a locked ratio or do it in Photoshop, but it seems strange that LR wouldn't allow a real 2 x 3 as a fixed ratio.

I'm using LR6 with the latest updates applied. Any hints?

    When in the crop tool display, Ctrl-X (on the PC) flips the aspect ratio, but I've not found a way to save the portrait orientations either. (I'm on LR 6.7.)

    Bingo. Problem solved. No need to save them once you know the trick, which I didn't. Thanks, Jim.
