Re: set "Split View" as default

Based on the previous thread I may very well be beating a dead horse with this request.

Could the ability to choose Standard or Ribbon Layout also be added to the default settings if it is not complicated to do?

Thanks.

Re: Redaction Color

I fiddled around and got the None setting saved. Always redacting black text on a white page so white also works fine as the default.

All started by my desire to do redactions without a black box which I think was the default setting. I don't ever remember changing it.

Thanks.

Re: Redaction Color

It appears I don't understand how this works. I expected with the attached page to see the pink background underneath with the None setting.

Are you able to save your settings so that None is the default choice for Redaction Color? I can't seem to do that here.

Thanks.

Redaction Color

The dialog box for changing Redaction Color has an option for None. This option can be selected, but does not seem to work. However, I can set it to any color and those settings seem to work fine. Should the None option work also?

Thanks.

David, I may be partially responsible for this change. Back then I had hoped that at least Standard/Ribbon Layouts could be set in the default settings.
