Draw Tools changing default settings

Postby alelec2 » Wed Jun 19, 2019 7:54 pm

I can't figure out how to change the default settings for the drawing tools, in particular I want to change the Line settings from Gray 6 to Black, and width to 0.01", instead of having to keep editing every line I draw.

You cannot because there are is no StyleFamily for shapes. The attributes set for new graphical elements are hard coded. What comes next to what you want may be a collectioon of samples that you keep open to get copies you can paste into your workfile.

LibreOffice has styles for some kinds of shapes in Draw, but not in Writer.
