Don't Have a Stroke

Begone, Default Stroke!

The basic shape tools — Rectangle, Ellipse and Polygon — have a 1 point black stroke by default, which I hardly ever want. It's simple enough to change a shape's stroke weight to 0 points (in the Stroke or Control palettes), but it gets tiresome after a while. And it's easy to forget to do this, especially since the stroke is almost undetectable beneath InDesign's frame outline preview (in Normal View Mode).


With no documents open, select a Shape tool — any one of the three — and change the stroke weight to 0 points in the Stroke or Control palette. Quit InDesign to save your new application defaults. The next time you start up the program and create a Rectangle, Ellipse or Polygon shape, its stroke will automatically be 0 points.
