That's intentional? If you are not allowed to change the values until the shape is drawn, it's very confusing to offer those values to you, let you change them, and then snap them back to the default value. The inputs ought to be hidden, dimmed, disabled, locked, something to give you a hint that you are not allowed to interact with them yet. 

It's also inconsistent with other tools. I can change the stroke width without any item selected, and then that value is applied the next time I create a shape that has a stroke. 

It's also inconsistent with the desktop app where polygon sides and start points etc. may be input before drawing. 

I did try to get a video anyway, but with the Assistive Touch marker on, the selection bubbles don't seem to work and I can't draw. Is there another trick for showing touch inputs when getting a video?

I never said this was intentional, just wanted to confirm it was this behaviour that was causing it, and that it was not happening with a shape selected. This can be done on the desktop as you say so this is a bug with the iPad. I'll get it passed on to development.

Oh, good good, I misunderstood the combo of your post and a followup. Whew. Because that would have been bananas in pajamas. :)
