I am using Inkscape for scientific drawing.
Something that really annoys me is that I have to very frequently go in the menu to switch default parameters to the one I want to use.
For instance, the default width for line drawing is 0.265mm.
Let's assume I want to draw a line (with Bézier tool) of 1.5mm of width. I put 1.5mm width, I draw my line: this is fine it is the first drawing.
But if I want to draw a new line, by default he would have put be back at 0.265mm. Thus, I have again to go in the menu, say I want 1.5mm and draw it.
Multiply this by 50 lines and you understand that I had to go 50 times in the menu instead of one.
And this happens for many options, if I want to do a given number of object several times, the options often goes back to default between each object I draw which is really time consuming.
My question: are there options to fix this ?
A related but not identical is when I want to save in PNG. Let's assume my .svg is in the folder "folder1". If I want to export into PNG it always propose me an obscure default folder. I then have to find again my folder.
My second question: Is there a way to force the default path of PNG being the same as where the SVG I am working on is ? I am not asking to specify a default folder for PNG save but to "attach" the folder it saves in to where the SVG currently is.
