Default stroke check box next to stroke weight
Please, please make a "Default" checkbox next to the stroke weight that can force all future strokes to the set weight when checked
Actually I was looking for control of the point size as soon as you grab an object with a fill and stroke and with the shortcut D it will switch you to stroke……, then a selected field on the Stroke panel will be handy to just use arrow to increase or decrease. Size of stroke.
Like the feature for nudge, Cmd K opens preferences and Keyboard Increment is already highlighted, type in number of inches, mm, or pixels and hit ok.and then arrow key moves to your new distance.
There is another way of doing this (kind of).
Create an rectangle or whatever, open Graphic Styles, apply the default black/white one to your shape, set the stroke weight you want, than Alt+drag this shape over the default style.
And every time you press D you’ll get this particular weight.
