ShapeMaker does not provide direct option to revert Default setting; just like tools palette. However, there is a simple method to achieve this. You can save the default settings as a 'Preset' and apply it in any or all the subsequent projects/layouts you create.


  1. Launch QuarkXPress > create a project > Invoke ShapeMaker Palette > Go to Presets tab and give a name like 'Default' and save the default settings.

  2. When ever you want to apply default settings > select default preset and select 'Use Settings' button. All newly created shapes will have default settings of ShapeMaker.

Similarly you can create multiple Presets for the shapes you often create and just use those presets on a single click.
