Set Snagit Effects back to defaults

If someone has a quick way to do this I'm at the front of the line to know how.

Very seldom do I apply the same effect to a series of captures or image edits.
Specifically Color Adjustment or Spotlight/Magnify. Color Replacement sometimes if I'm changing the same elements on a group of captures or images but Color Replacement is fairly easy to reset to the defaults. Just click the X.




Thats not the case on the other effects again such as Color Adjustment or Spotlight/Magnify.
When you go to apply them all the previous values are still there and you have to highlight each value and type in a zero to start fresh and zero for Gamma setting under the Color Adjustment isn't the default. Best I can remember it is 0.87 but at this point I'm not sure on that anymore.

A way to Reset the values to the defaults in the Effects would save a great deal of time and frustration.

Clicking on Color Adjustment for a new capture and it totally mutilating it until you reset each value one by one is a real PITA.

A similar request was posted less than a year ago. https://feedback.techsmith.com/techsmith/topics/color-adjustment-reset-to-default

Much to my surprise, it got little attention. 5 votes.

I don't think it should remember previous settings at all.They should have quick styles for that.

I did a search but must have missed that post.

Having it Not remember any of the previous values would be the best solution for sure.

I would speculate the low vote count is because most people probably don't use those effects much.

Not expecting the idea to go far or happen just because we know how that goes but thought I'd throw it out there anyways.

Maybe just maybe till/if  I'll just have to deal with it.
