Every time I fill an object with color it fills at 50% transparent by default. I don't want to disable the tool because I use it frequently but I do not want new objects automatically filled as transparent. This seems to apply to both imported graphics and newly local created graphics.
I have the same problem and it's become a major irritant. Myron, I didn't understand your answer. Can you expand on it?
Perhaps you unintentionally set the default for new graphic objects to have some transparency. It is actually fairly easy to do that.
To check this, look in the Object Styles docker, under Default Object Properties, and select Graphic. In the Transparency section, see what the settings are.
Here's what it looks like for me. I've drawn a box around the "no transparency" which is in effect.
If you change that, then you are changing the default for new graphic objects created in that document.
If you want to change the default for documents you create in the future, then you could right-click on Graphic, then click on Set as New Document Default in the context menu.
I would add that the way I showed above is not the only way to do this.
What Myron described will work, too:
With a document open, but with nothing selected, set to "no Transparency".
CorelDRAW may pop up a "Change Document Defaults" dialog:
If you have previously told it to not show this dialog, then it won't pop up - and CorelDRAW will instead "silently" change the document default for Graphic objects based on what you changed with nothing selected.
Again, that would change the default in the current document.
Myron's other instruction was to use Tools>Save Settings as Default:
Doing that saves defaults from the current document as defaults for new documents.
Ah! Problem solved. Thank you very much, Eskimo.
