Default settings of drawings

I'm having a lot of problems in defining the default settings for the drawings in the chart. I've been using cTrader for a couple of hours. When I drew a rectangle, I wanted the background color the same as the line color, but semi transparent. So I changed the settings and kept the box checked 'Apply as default settings for rectangles.'. The default was not changed and the rectangle still had solid color background. I tried a lot of times and suddenly it worked. Later I tried drawing a line, but now the line (which was the same color as the rectangle line and background color) is semi transparent, the same as the rectangle background. Again I tried changing the default multiple times to a solid color without success. Suddenly I managed to do it, but now the rectangle has the background with no transparency again. What is the issue with this? How do I effectively change the default color of line and rectangle in a single move and separately??

I think that cTrader developers are doing sophisticated things... but are not able to manage simple once.
Its really frustrating that simple option does not work.

The same is wit simple functionality I have mentioned - adding icon for temporary "hide all indicators", or icons for every indicator to hide it if not necessary for the moment.

I am not even mentioning about functionality from Trading View - synchronized cross hair cursor on the charts...

cTrader developers are doing everything to make less people use cTrader platform. Its good direction to make cTrader useless...
