Keep User Preferences

Nuxeo Enhanced Viewer provides a way to customize the annotations by changing the type of arrows, font, size, line thickness, highlight, fit to page, etc.

Previously, the user needed to change the annotation style for each new annotation. Starting from NEV 10.6, annotations style changes are now saved per user and per type of annotation. So that, for a given user, each new annotation is created with the same type as the previous one of the same kind.
