Separate text and shape styles for default properties

  1. I love that you can choose the default properties so that new shapes and text can have a default style under Edit › Set Default Properties. What I don’t love is that shape layers and text layers have to share that same property. For example, if I’m doing some wireframing, I would like to have my default shape properties include a border, but I most definitely do not want my text to have borders.

  2. I would love some kind of UI that would let me choose what properties belong to which kind of object. Or at the very least, a simple separation would do, so that there would be one action to “set default layer properties” and another to “set default text properties”

Thanks for listening!
