Save last used properties

Recommended Posts


I'm doing right now several images with the IMPACT font type.

But when I start over affinity every time I have to select the same font type, same the color, same the stroke again and again.

It will be nice if the last used properties/options get saved so when I start affinity I dont have to reselect them.

Another example: when I open an image the hand tool (view tool ) is always selected by default, I rather prefer the move tool.

Is there any way to do this ?


Thanks !

Go to View > Studio > Text Styles and set up your favourite style after deleting all the present ones. Save your style and choose from the Text Style's hamburger menu "Save as default".

Or, setup a text frame as you like it (font, color, etc.), type some text, and select that text. Then Edit > Defaults > Synchronize from Selection followed by Edit > Defaults > Save.
