Can Snagit's default settings for the Arrow be set to remove the shadow setting?

I dislike the shadow setting that displays by default for the arrow in the Snagit editor. I have not been able to find out how to customize the defaults for the application so I can remove it.

Any suggestions?

And to expound on Paul's advice, you can then choose to add the arrow to a Quick Style or add it to your favorites. Just click the star to add it to your favorites.

Problem is, that shadow check box will come right back as soon as you restart SnagIt.

Heres my approach. I deleted every  Default Quick Style from every tool in the arsenal.
I also don't use a lot of annotations.
Then, I created all my arrows and shapes,etc. from scratch. All without shadows and saved them as Quick Styles along the way.
I ignore the shadow check box and just use my quick styles, or the quick styles I saved as Favorites.

If I want to create something with a shadow someday. I always can.

Why does the arrow sizes keep reverting to 10?  Why doesn't it save my settings?  What's up with huge arrows, geez ...
