You can only create Custom Ratio or Absolute Size crop presets. Annoyingly, for Custom Ratio ones you cannot create the reciprocal of a existing one. IOW, because there is a built-in 5 : 4 custom ratio preset you can't add a 4 : 5 one. Apparently, this is because the smaller number always appears first in the context toolbar ratio fields ... or something. :S

Create just one of the presets (if there isn't one already) for example 4:5. Whenever you need the opposite (i.e 5:4), click the Rotate button in the context toolbar to switch the orientation.

Since that involves two steps (one to choose the preset & a second one to rotate it), it would be nice if we could create the reciprocal preset to eliminate the extra rotate step.

Also, it is confusing & annoying that the builtin preset names begin with the larger number (like 10" x 8" [8R] or 16 : 10) but in the context toolbar they begin with the smaller number & that is always used for the width, which means the crop box often initially extends far outside the document edges & we have to zoom out to grab a handle.
