Description King 2021-05-05 03:12:13 UTC
1. Open the annotation tool and change a few annotation tool settings from their defaults. For example, I often use the Rectangle tool, change the color to red (default is gray), and switch to "Border and No Fill" (default is filled).
2. Annotate the image, hit Annotation done, and close Spectacle.
3. Re-open Spectacle, take another screenshot and re-open the annotation tool.

Annotation tool settings revert to their defaults.

Previously selected tool settings are restored.

This is my wish too. It's annoying to set my preferred settings for Text tool again every time I want to use it because they were not remembered when closing Spectacle last time I used said tool.

Save Annotation tool settings across launches

Save Annotation tool settings across launches, so the user always has, for example,
the same font settings in the annotator.

I'm using kubuntu 22.04 with latest updates and I'm still seeing this bug:

1. perform "rectangular region" screenshot
2. annotate the screenshot (e.g. change text color to red)
3. close spectacle (using the close button in title bar)
4. perform another screenshot
5. text color is again gray
