Changing Default Settiings

Hi!

In Geogebra 5, I was able to define the default settings for the colour of the various objects (eg point, graphs, background colour, etc).

I haven't found such a menu for Geogebra 6 yet and have been setting up these default colour schemes every time I write an app/graph. (eg I like to have a dark blue background and light-coloured axes and graphs).

Would anyone please be able to tell me where I can set it up once and for all so that it will apply to all files that I create?

Thank you!

For the settings of the Graphics, you can rightclick, and choose the settings for background, grid etc. If you click on Save Settings these settings will appear when opening a new document in GG 6.

For objects as Points, Lines etc. you can't work in a properties window to save the settings for all kinds of objects as in GG 5, but you can work in the Style bar for that type of object. If you activate e.g. the Point tool, choose a color and/or a Point Style you can save this as a setting for future files by rightclicking in the graphics, clicking on the wheel in the upright corner to open the tab General and selecting Save Settings.
