    Is it possible to change the default color for the Draw On Image widget?

    Asked by jebascho on July 11, 2017 at 07:21 PM

    The default color for the Draw On Image widget is black. Is it possible to change the user's default color to another color? This would (a) let us assign a more visible color and (b) more intuitively clue the user that there are more colors available other than the default.

    Unfortunately, there currently is no option to set a default pen color for the Draw on Image widget. I agree though with your thoughts on this matter, and I like the idea of this feature being added. Especially if the background image has a dark color, having a black default pen color is not ideal for starting or loading the element.

    With this in mind, I have escalated this request to the development team and see if there is any possibility to add an option on setting the default pen color. However, I cannot guarantee that this option can be added anytime soon. But as soon as we have updates, we'll inform you right away.
