Magic wand tolerance default should be zero 0
********** tolerance should be zero by default. For fill colors, I never use it on anything but 0. For strokes I use tolerance of 0 about 90% of the time. Pro users are generally using spots, global process colors or simply eyedrop+fill when working so there is rarely a need for selecting a "range of colors/shades" especially as wide as 32. In AI, this tool is used differently than Photoshop.
Or perhaps default tool tolerances could be part of a user preference?setting/workspace. (Along with setting default color swatches to HSB sliders)

When I googled "how to change default magic wand settings," this is not where I expected to end up. It's hard to believe this isn't already an option.

Yes, please make some option to change the default values of magic wand tool!
I always use 0 Tolerance and setting this up every day is very frustrating!
Or at least make default Tolerances 0
Any update on why the word Magic Wand ( M a g i c W a n d ) is censored in my and other users similar posts?
I am not sure what the original word was, but seems like UserVoice is filtering these words. I am following up with UV to review the filtering rules. Can you please drop a note to me firstname.lastname@example.org, what you originally wanted to write.
Hi Keith, I realized after I posted it that Adobe must be censoring it for some reason! Very weird.
Hey Adobe team, why did you censor the word "**********" in my feature request?
Adobe changed it to " ******** ". I originally wrote the "**********". I have no idea why it was changed.
BTW, not including the name of the tool (**********) in the title, makes it a lot harder for people to find and vote on this specific feature request.
Absolutely agree. have to change the tolerance every single time I use the ********** tool. It's incredibly frustrating.
If, for some reason the argument can me made to retain the 20% tolerance, then please give users to opportunity to set their own tolerance in their workspace set up.
I couldn't agree more. Why this is still an issue is beyond me.
