    Can you default line color, shape characteristics, etc.?

    mandi loomis

      When drawing lines, circles, etc., I always have to use the corporate color, but can't figure out how to make this a preference or default, so every single time I create a new file, I have to manually type in the color number. Also, when I draw a circle/square, I always want no fill with the corporate color outline. Any way to make this stick?

      Thank you very much!

          Add the colors to the Swatches panel in this way. Once you've added your color to an object, open the Swatches panel and hover over a blank space at the bottom until you see the cursor change to a paint bucket. Click on the panel and a new swatch with your color will be created. It's not document specific, so you'll be able to use your custom color swatches any time you create a new document. Just to be double safe, choose Save Swatches from the swatches panel menu.
