make initial text color last used color?

make initial text color last used color?

it seems that in illustrator, no matter what color you have been working with, the text tool will make any newly created text objects black.  i would expect that if the last thing i typed was red, the tool would default to red.

its not the biggest deal in the world, but its irritating if, say, you are working on a black background.

does anyone know how to change that?

RE: make initial text color last used color?

That is a strange quirk... a possible work around would be that once you are done typing, just copy that text object and paste it, then edit that new text. You could easily do this by dragging it with alt held down to make a copy. Then select all and start typing over your old text.
