Default Paint Shop Pro 8.1 Frustrations

I was quite happy and familiar with Paint Shop Pro 6, but when PSP 8.1 came along, I upgraded without keeping the old version on my WinXP computer, a mistake.

I have been frustrated ever since. Today I was even more provoked, because I could not crop pictures that I just took with an aspect ratio of 1 to 1.3333, which is essential for real estate pictures to be loaded to my client's web site. Formerly, the crop tool showed me the pixels and the aspect ratio in a little window below the picture. That is gone, and I can't find any help to get it back.

This is just the latest in a series of frustrations. Now Corel sends me a deal on upgrading to PSP X. Would this make my situation worse? I want PSP 6 back, or failing that, help which really helps me. No help in PSP 8.1 for aspect ratio, nor does the cropping help tell me about aspect ratio or anything else helpful.

Well, I have let of some steam, and maybe somebody has PSP and can tell me how to get back the aspect ratio with cropping (I can see it with other tools.), but I doubt that I will be really happy with digital editing again.
