Default options

How do I set a default stroke thickness when I draw a QS? Also how do I set a default for keeping a QS selected after I have drawn it?

If voting made any difference it wouldn't be allowed!

That seems to be two separate questions.

For the second question, there’s an option in the Context Toolbar for “Select new object” which should do what you want, unless I’ve misunderstood the question.

As for the first question, I don’t think it’s possible to keep the same stroke width for all newly-drawn shapes as the software uses the ‘last used’ formatting when you draw new shapes. And if you have changed the stroke width in-between drawing shapes then the new shape may have a different stroke width.
If you have more specific details about what you are trying to do then we might be able to come up with something.

(Styles may be an option, or setting the Default Style, perhaps.)

Set up your "QS" (I assume you mean the Shapes like Rectangle, Triangle, Diamond. etc.) with the stroke you want. Now go to the Edit > Defaults > Synchronize From Selection and then immediately go to Edit > Defaults > Save. This will give you stroke width and fill etc for all new shapes. If you subsequently change the width and want to get back to it use the Revert Defaults button on the Toolbar to set back to what you have saved as your defaults.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.
