Randomly Default Fill and Stroke changes to Red/Blue?

Community Beginner ,

Normally the default fill and stroke is white and black but randomly it'll change to red for the fill and blue for the stroke color and I'm not sure if I'm doing a mid click keystroke or something else that might be causing it. The only way to revert it is to open a new file. Any help would be super appreciated!

I wouldn't call them "old" since I just created this particular file yesterday and I finally decided to ask about it. The issue has been occurring only within the last week. But once it happens to a file then I can't revert it. Thank you for helping 🙂

Do you have an "Enable Rich UI" option in Preferences > General?

If so, can you try and disable it?

Thank you so much for helping! I don't see that option in Preferences > General though.

If I understand correctly, this only happens with old files?

I understand that once it happens, the defaults for the file have changed, I was just wondering if that behaviour stopped now with new created files. You were not the only one with that problem, but it seems to have stopped.

It definitely stops when I create a new file until it happens again to that new file lol. It's so weird ... in all my years this has never happened to me before and I'm so curious why it's happening now. I end up having to use my swatch window to select color fill/stroke instead of the toolbar on the left but it's hard to break that muscle memory.

I'm having this happen to me, too. It happens to new and old files. Can't seem to find an answer. Hoping someone else here has solved it.

Seems that turning off the "Enable Rich UI" option in Preferences > General can solve it.

Can you try that?
