I've noticed that frequently, if I apply an effect like rounded corners or bevel and emboss to an object in a document, every single object I create after that has the effect automatically applied. It doesn't happen every time, so I have no idea what I'm doing differently. I checked in Object Styles to see if there's a style being set up automatically, but it doesn't look like it.
The same thing happens with type sometimes.
What am I missing?
Thanks for your help,
This happens when you set the effect with nothing selected. It becomes the new default. Deslect everything and unselect the effect and it won't be applied to new objects.
Amazingly helpful. Thank you so much.
