Crop guide default
Is there any way to make (eg) "Rule of thirds" the default for the crop tool?

thanks,

Sure, all Tool defaults are customisable.
Start up Gimp (So all tools are at their defaults)
Modify the Crop Tool options as required.
Edit->Preferences.
In the Preference dialog, Choose 'Tool Options' from the list on the left of screen.
Then click 'Save Tool Options Now', then click OK.

Hence why the first step said "Start up Gimp (So all tools are at their defaults)", but fair warning, my apologies if it was not explicit enough...
