AD: Pen & Brush tool - use same colour settings as last-selected object

Recommended Posts

I would love to be able to select an object, then select the Pen or Brush tool and have that tool use the same stroke and fill settings as the currently-selected object. This would be a big time-saver.

In the MAS release this only works properly for default shapes like rects for me. 


Make a shape with a fill and stroke colour.

select it (use the blue cloud with the up arrow icon) to synchronise defaults from selection.

select the rect shape tool, draw a rect it's all fine - I get stroke and colour.

now try the pen tool. I only get the stroke.


Anyone else getting this?

This is not working for me. Does it actually work for the pen tool? It seems very arbitrary on how it chooses the colour, fill and stroke.  Sync does not work with pen tool for me.


I know this is an old thread, so does that mean it's 'been solved'?


I'd love to know. soon
