In creating virtual groups it would be nice to have the option to display a vertical center line (solid or dotted) in the aspect ratio settings for image mode. This would help in lining up, orienting and straightening the full length shots used in virtual groups.

    We've been doing this for years by using aspect ratios:
    I've enabled head guides with an oval with width/height ratio of 2:200 and positioned 50% of the image width from the left. You can set the top and bottom at any reasonable numbers but I'm using 7 and 82%.

    You may have to play with the 2:200 ratio a bit as it won't always show, apparently depending on how many images are displayed.

    Yes I agree with bill, a center horizontal lines helps with straightening the image. It's very much needed feature embedded into Timestone editing softwares. Also would like to have presets drop down that can be configured and selected for a specific pose And assign a different crop to a second pose. Which can be saved as defaults to master template instead of saving copies of presets
