Summary0009016: Default tools settings
DescriptionI suggest to reproduce this features from QuarkXpress: allow user customize default tools settings, specifically properties of new frames/lines - border style, number of columns, gap, flowaround, distances, etc.
TagsNo tags attached.

Some very useful parameters are still unavailable in section you pointed to: border style, flowaround, text distances.
Now some of default settings for image frame are rather rare than common - i.e. image frame with no runaround (in my 10 years typesetting practice there were only few).

Moreover, sometimes you have to change defaults in a middle of project. Yeah, scrapbook surely has me, it's great for storing "templates" of frames, but I think that tools settings must be document independent.
