Last part of my report was lost.

Now, the big yellow tick has disappeared.
This proves the second issue, Recompling signal clears "Use as Default" settings.

Two issue is related in that,

If there is no issue1, issue2 might be interpreted as precedence of "Use as Default" and "setting in PLEditor"

I see no "Use as Default" check box in PLEditor "Signal Properties" window.
People may interpret it as setting in PLEditor has higer precedence than current "Use as Default", so you have no choice, it will be the new "Use as Default" whether you want or not.

Then if I want to preserve my current "Use as Default" setting, I have to apply the signal to a chart and format it to pop up "Format Signal" window and compare these two properties windows. Very inconvienient situation.

I think "Use as Default" should have higher precdeence, when it is changed it should be reflected in properties in PLEditor.

Another opinion, the "Signal Properties" windows from PLEditor has nothing to do with the signal, there's no Inputs tab, its all about the shape and color common to all signals.
How about make check box "Use as Default" here and when I make a new signal, the colors and shape I check "Use as Default" come up, instead of MC's installtion default? I always change it, since my chart window background color is white, MC's installation default characters are white.
