Shapes - Points cannot be colored

The color value does not seem to have any effect on points - they are always white.

Hello ashalota,

Currently it is an expected behavior for point shapes and polygon/polyline shape vertices. However, we are planning to fix it in the future updates.

Perfect, thank you. I realize now I had only been working with patches.

I didn't have a preference for patch over polygon but the reason I choose patches is because it does not make the window pop up asking me to label the polygon. If there could be an option to suppress that (and just automatically assign labels to polygons/points as the patches do) that would also be very helpful.

I may be going down a less common use case for Metashape with this but having these simple GIS tools built in has been very helpful as Metashape is the best program for me to view the data in and saves me a step from having to export, make new overviews, etc, and loading it into a different GIS program to do additional work. Also the ability to easily create my own GUI menu tools and additional functionality with the python scripting has been great, it makes it so easy to work within Metashape.

Hello ashalota,

In the version 1.6.5 there's a possibility to select, whether you wish to have shape properties dialog opened after drawing or not (right in the Shape Properties dialog), but you seem to be using older version.

I'll upgrade then! I appreciate all the work that is still going on with this project, every time I think of a problem it seems to have already been fixed in the latest version :)
