Shapefile Colours

Hi! I’m a long-time reader, first-time poster and I can’t seem to find an answer for my particular question.

I’m importing an ESRI Shapefile and was wondering if it is possible to set a default colour for the “derived mask” it creates? Or, is there a way save the colour if I close and reopen the product?

Forgive me if I’m using the wrong terminology. I’m a relative newbie at this. Thanks!

The masks are always created with the red colour. Unfortunately there is an issue with the masks based on geometries.

Due to this issue the change in styling is lost

The layers created for shapefile consider the styling information in the *.sld file, if present. When the SLD is not present then the vector data nodes are differently coloured.

So you better use the layers at the moment for geometries if you want to colourise them.

Thanks for the response!
