new subgoal gets color of parent although 'apply to subgoals' is NOT selected

I gave a parent goal a color but did NOT select 'apply to subgoals'
If I then create a new subgoal it still gets the color of the parent.
For the first subgoal (created for this parent) I would prefer to get a goal without any color.

If I now give this new subgoal a different color and add a neighbour goal -> it also gets the color of the parent goal.
For subsequent neighbours of the new subnote I would prefer to give the new neighbour goal the color of the previous selected goal when creating it.

If hope the attached image helps to understand what I mean.

    Hello Chris

    Thanks for taking the time to contact us about this.

    We are aware of an issue where color is applied to new subgoals of a parent that has a color applied, even when 'Apply to subgoals' is not applied. We will fix this in a future update.

    We do not however intend to implement the automatic application of a goal's color to a new Neighbor added: it may not be desired in some cases, so we would need to include an extra 'Apply to neighbors' option. If you want to apply the same color to a set of neighbors you can apply it to the parent with 'Apply to subgoals' checked'; then, if required, uncheck that option and remove or change the color applied to the parent.

    All the best

    Thanks, fine it will get fixed.
    I understand your point about the neighbor color - no big deal for me.
