When I draw a line, it is always black. After having drawn that line I can easily change all properties.
But if I want to draw 101 pink lines I have to change the color of every line drawn either right after drawing or by selecting them later on. When I select the line tool the fill/contour boxes as well as the corresponding dialogue is greyed out.
I want to set the colors and then go and draw everything in that color until I decide to use a different one. Googling seems fruitless, results only deal with changing colors of existing objects.
So, how can I determine the color of object before drawing them?
