OK, I see where you're coming from now. Because, in Inkscape, there
isn't a 'style I'm currently drawing in', but only a style associated
with each object, when you draw with a tool often the style isn't the
one you will eventually use. The bigger problem, though, is when
changing back to a tool with an object selected. If it then recalls the
style associated with the tool, I suppose it would change the style of
the selected object, which isn't what I want.
So perhaps that's not the feature I want. Maybe the feature I want is an
easy way to swap the fill style with the stroke style. That way, I could
draw with the freehand tool, switch to the calligraphy tool, draw
another object, press the appropriate key, and carry on drawing, without
having to set the colour by hand or change to selector and ^c ^V the
style from another object.
Maybe even that isn't the feature I want. Maybe it's some other feature.
Maybe the feature already exists? But you know the problem I would like
to solve. Surely I can't be the only one who spends too much time on
Btw, it's a bit late, I suppose, but I'd like to apologize for hijacking
Christian's thread. :-)
