    1. Create rectangle/ any shape object. disable the border.
    2. Go to menu bar: Edit > Set Style as Default

    It's no longer in the Edit menu. The new path to set a default shape setting is: Layer > Style > Set as Default Style

    In the same realm, how can I color a graphic (group of shapes) without having to individually select all the separate shapes within that group?

      This plugin allows you to select all child layers of a group with a hotkey. I believe there may be others that make this the default functionality.

      Also, if you hold command and click an object within a group, it'll select that layer instead of the group. Not exactly the same, but a real time saver.

      Along the same lines, if you command click and drag around your group, you will select all the elements for re-coloring without having to individually select the shapes.

      Although, if you have a lot of overlapping groups this may not be practical.

    Great tip.

    Also: the "B" and "F" hotkeys will toggle the "border" and "fill" properties, respectively. Meaning whenever I create a new object, I'm so used to immediately hitting the "B" key that I don't even bother with setting the default any more...
