Crop to settings not changing from Bounding Box

While placing an image, after choosing Show Import Options, I try to select something other than Bounding Box in the Crop to settings and it won't let me change how it is inserted. I have tried this with both PDFs and AI files, and it is a problem for my coworkers as well who are using 2018. After restarting InDesign, I didn't have the problem anymore.

    I just started having this exact problem using InDesign CC 13.1

    I placed a PDF image into a press layout template. I selected media size and it places an image with no crops. The crops show up in the PDF. The PDF has properly assigned page boxes. I can drag and drop the PDF into InDesign and it will have the crops... but not when I use import (which I must to use in order to get the positioning correct in my press template.)

    Restarting InDesign didn't help. Neither did resaving the PDFs after an Acrobat DC update.
