Description Ljiljan 2013-05-11 07:17:49 UTC
improvement, not a problem

When one color is selected for text, drawing, line etc (at the toolbar)...  it should be market as default, so when next object is edited/ drawn it is easier to select the same color (there is no need to search for that color again among all other color palette) 

this will same time for me
Operating System: Ubuntu
Version: release

In the future please write out explicit steps - it helps a lot for triage work :)

1. Open draw
2. Create a line
3. Change color of line to Green
4. Create another line

You'll see that new line color is black and there is no way to easily change it to green without scrolling through the list of colors

There should be some way to easily apply last color to new line/shape/etc...


I can confirm this behavior, one suggestion might be to handle it like we do fonts (have a drop down list as well as a button, the button stores the last color in it so if you push it, that color is applied)

Marking as:
High - seems like this could affect a lot of users, the current setup could definitely use this improvement
