I did search the forum and saw one or two refs to this and a mention that this had been remedied in a previous update.
However, the latest version is not remembering the Highlights settings such as Transparency (255), Inner Color (off), Line Width, or Blend Mode (Normal) between re-starts of the application.
And this may actually have something more to do with initial restart of the computer rather than restart of the application itself. Just did an exit of SC and a restart of SC (without a restart of the PC) and the settings for the Highlight tool seemed to stick.
It also was not remembering the Shape (square/circle) preference, but haven't noticed that issue lately.
For the Arrow tool, the same issues are noticed also.
Have I missed a how-to on forcing SC to remember the settings on the Object edit prefs?
Is there some sort of SC ".ini" type file that is being overwritten when restarting my PC which may be losing my prefs for the tools?
