Hi

 

I am confused to how pen stroke weight/ fill colour are set by default.

 

I draw a line set the stroke to 1 point black then start a new stroke and it reverts to 0pt no colour.

 

Thanks

Hi Jake,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Select the line with the fill/stroke properties you want to become default then click Synchronise defaults from selection in the main toolbar (the blue cloud icon with an up white arrow). Affinity Designer will use the attributes of that selection from now on to create new lines/objects.

You can reset the attributes back to their defaults (grey fill/no stroke), clicking on the Revert defaults icon (on the right of the Synchronise defaults from selection icon).

Is there any way (even with a hack) to change these defaults? The default grey fill is so light on my iMac that if I am working with a document with a transparent background new shapes often blend into the checkerboard background display that I have a hard time seeing them.

 

At least for me, 50% grey would be a much more desirable default fill color.

Is there a way to set defaults not only for the current document but also for new documents? At least it should be possible to select a style before drawing a rectangle etc. (in Affinity Photo).

Hi MEB,

I'm finding that this feature doesn't work for me. I want my pen tool to match the setting I have in the image attached. But after synching, it still reverts to a 0.3px solid line every time I try. What am I doing wrong?
