Set Default Properties with stroke width and color

Whenever I create a arrow line, it always defaults to black color with 3px stroke. I often use the arrow line (Shft + L) to indicate any notes/guidelines.


Applying default properties like as we do for the text will greatly help with the stroke and color properties for the line aswell.

Do you expereince the same thing ? Is there any workaround you could suggest ?

You can set the default color like this: draw an arrow, go to Main menu › Edit › Set default properties.

The strange thing is that this setting doesn’t remember the thickness of the arrow.

The arrow tool resets its appearance to a 3px black line every time. It would be great that it remembers the last used style (just as the pen and pencil tools do.)
