1. Import a PDF file

2. Highlight any text in the document.

3. Click the Font Color Palette dropdown arrow and select any color besides the 
   system default color of black (for this example, let's change it to blue).

4. Now, select some other text in the document. Notice that after selecting the 
   text, the Font Color Palette has reverted back to black. The user must  
   click on the Font Color Palette dropdown arrow again to choose the color 
   they had last used. 

Requested enhancement:

Rather than have the application default back to black every time new text is 
highlighted (and force the user to have to click the Font Color Palette 
dropdown arrow and choose the color they last used), why not "save" the last 
color the user had used? 

Better yet, allow the user to toggle this behavior. For example, if they want 
to have the app save the last color used each time they use a non-default font 
color, provide some sort of "toggle switch" to "set" the color. When they no 
longer need this color, they use the toggle switch again so the system sets the 
Font Color Palette back to it's default (black) every time text is highlighted.
