Attempting to select text's fill color changes object's fill color instead.

Recommended Posts

Thanks, Chris.  But that's not correct behavior.  The toolbar clearly switches to the text-tool options (as it should).  Therefore it makes no sense for its controls to affect some other object.  What if I had changed a property that doesn't even exist on a rectangle?  For example, I pressed the "italic" button, and it didn't make the rectangle slanted.


And it stands to reason that the user will want to set the text color before typing any text.  He shouldn't have to run around looking for selected objects (which may be off-screen) before creating a new one, or compulsively press a Deselect key before using a tool.  I can't think of any other application that imposes this burden on the user.
