Tool Container Default Margin

Every time I add a tool container I default the Margin to "none." Could you make a default selection part of user settings? Thank you.

Yes, please! I clicked this topic again, just to make extra sure I had starred it!

Yes, please add this feature. Everytime I use a container, the first thing I do after naming is changing the margin. Defaul should be 'None' or user option. Thanks.

totally agree. When you use containers so many times and when you're always forced to change it to 'none'... it will be really a pleasure to set in user settings 🙂

 For the upcoming 11.0 release, we are changing the default margin to be "small".  We considered making the default "none" but found that it is difficult to then add tools to the process within the container.  Hopefully this will help with some of the problems you are reporting with the current default.  We will consider a global user setting for this in the future.

The status of this is "Implemented", but I can't see it on the User Settings.

Could you share a screenshot?





Hi Karen


If you select the Tool Container so its configuration window appears, there is a "Margin" field which you can set to "None". This shrinks the margin considerably. The default setting is Small.  However, I don't think you can specify your preference as a default setting so, unfortunately, you'll need to apply it to each Tool Container, one by one.




Hope that helps.
