When I crop an image, the initial Crop Overlay defaults to the Golden Spiral. This is in a 'pristine' installation of APhoto 1.8, no prefs changed. 

I don't personally mind, but it could well throw users who might expect the more usual "None" or "Grids Third".

And no prior beta of Affinity Photo installed? Preferences would carry over from a prior installation of the 1.7 beta, or a 1.6 beta, etc.

Not sure if I ever installed a prior beta. My preferences file was created today (which is a bit odd as I installed 1.8 a couple of days back):

There are, on Windows, many different files holding portions of the Preferences and tool settings. Mac may be setup similarly, and you may not be looking at the right file.

Or, you may have found a problem with the Mac beta.

I couldn't replicate this on my Mac. In my case there's no overlay, e.g. None. Most likely this also was the setting i used in earlier betas.

Yes, it does sound the most likely explanation.

The app should just remember whatever Overlay you used the last time you accessed the Crop Tool.

It's quite possible that I ran a previous Beta at some point in the past and that I used the Golden Spiral cropping overlay.  I'm afraid I can't remember, though -  I was just a bit surprised to see it pop up as what appeared to be the default in 1.8.

Case closed though, I reckon.
