Default Angle

Is there any way to set the default angle when using the 'Face Draft' command.  The default angle is set to 2.5 degrees - for my application 45 would be more useful.

The last used values for this are in the registry, but I see no way to set the system default.

a blank "default" entry was in the list,  but Inventor ignores any edits to it.

 

This may be hard coded, or is hidden in registry under something more cryptic.

 

The arrow to the right of the default will bring up a list of recent values.

If you use 45 a lot,  it should always be int he pulldown, this saves typin it in at least.

I suspected as much - the drop down certainly helps but it would be nice to be able to set a default value.

 

Thanks.

Now there is a good suggestion for Autodesk.

 

Put "ALL" tool defaults in the registry so advanced users who want to streamline can change them as they please.
