New masking does not default to last effect used

Is there any way in the latest versoin with its fancy masking to bring back the behavior where newly-created masks will default to the last used effect?


I will often use a similar effect on different parts of an image and would rather the behavior be as it was in preivous versions, with the new mask automatically applying the last used effect to new masks. This saves me lots of time, as I do not have to go to the drop down menu every single time to select the same effect.


Is there a setting for this now or is it just gone? I would vey much appreciate having it back...
