Recovery mode doesn't work in just cropped area, can't return to previously cropped area

Not sure what the intention is for recovery mode. My use of Gigapixel is to crop a smaller area and generally double the size. Source image is 6690 pixels wide, and I’ll generally crop in Gigapixel 1500 and double it.
Recovery mode insists on working in the entire image. And if I go back to Crop mode it’s not there. Says it’s cropped, the crop guide is shown. Gigapixel is previewing the entire image.

The whole cropping is messed up often. I can define the size of the cropping frame but I am unable to move the cropping frame …
