Designer: Apply a Style to the current drawing tool?

Recommended Posts

Heya … Fiddly request here, unless I'm missing something or doing something wrong, please let me know!

For my client I draw vector designs (for CNC production) at a constant line width (usually 11pt) in a several colors (black, red, blue, green, cyan) to denote different types of lines.

Right now, it seems that every time I open a document, the pen tool is pre-set at Black 18pt in the Appearance panel. If I click on any of my styles to start out (say, Red 11pt), it does not set the tool preset to that; either I have to draw all the lines at 18pt and then (individually or as a group) set them all to the style I want; or, I have to manually set the Appearance panel to 11pt, Red, before I start working, which kind of defeats the purpose of having all those styles saved up for this client. XD

Is there some way to easily transfer the properties of a style to the current tool presets? Because I can't find it … If not, can I humbly suggest that as a feature request? ^.^

Thank you!

(Just cancelled Creative Cloud this week, so I'm on Affinity Designer, Photo, and Publisher pretty much full time) ^.^
