Hi forum,


On both Photo and Designer, I'm often confused by when my vector stroke styles are either inherited from the last object I create or not.
I can't work out the rules for how this happens - can anyone advise on how to control this behaviour either way?


Similar issues when I just want to draw a new vector with a new fill colour. So I might select the previous vector layer because I want to insert a new object in front of it. This object will always inherit the style of the one I have selected, which is often not what I want, and can make it hard to see the new shape. I have to change the fill and stroke afterward to stand out against the underlying object.


I'm sure I'm missing something simple here!!

Each tool will retain the settings from when it was last used. You can reset the Fill and Stroke back to their default Black & White via a keyboard shortcut. Open Preferences > Keyboard Shortcuts, set the first dropdown to Draw or Photo and the second to Miscellaneous and look for Set fill to Black & White.
