NewDraw, Save Default Settings


I'd like the Area Attributes for my graphics objects to default to Unfilled each time I open a new document. How can I do this?


To change your default to Unfilled, open a new, blank document. Don't draw anything, but select the draw tool for which you want to change the default. Set it the way you want it. Do the same for any other tools you wish to modify. Then select the File menu, Other, Empty Document, and save the document as the new Empty Document. After that, anytime you create a new document, you'll get the defaults you want.

This tip works for all the major applications, not just NewDraw.
