When I create drawings I use different colors than what are in the standard drop down (none of them fit my taste). So I always have to click "more" and then go select the color I want. Is there any way to force my own colors of choice in the initial drop down palette so I don't have to take so many steps? Saving it as a default will not work because for the same drawing I may use 2 or 3 different colors. Or any other suggestions as to how to accomplish the same thing. Thanks.

I, too, would be interested in this (if there is an answer). I haven't yet found a way to do this either. You can set a custom color as a default, but you can't add custom colors to the standard palette.

In case you do not know, in the TOS application there is Chat tab where you can find one for ThinkScript. The participants are very knowledgeable.
