Default Instrument does not work

Hi the team,
When I create a new project, I can choose the Instrument for Default Layer.
Once the project is created, the instrument does not match with what I chose.

The instrument shown is that of the default Layer. Unless you never started the program before (or applied “Clean All User Data”), the default Layer is created automatically when you started the first time with the Instrument set there. You can also save the default Layer (template) at any time.

When you create a new Part or Layer, that template is chosen to create a new Layer.
Admittedly, you would probably expect the default Layer to be changed when you change that setting, we may want to add a question if you really want to do that and apply, thanks for pointing out. For now, just set the Layer Instrument and “Save Default layer”, that would do what you expected.

You said “the default Layer is created automatically when you started the first time with the Instrument set there. You can also save the default Layer (template) at any time.”

But what is this option “Default Layer” when you create a new project ?

The default layer is stored on your local machine, and whenever you create a new Layer, the default Layer uses this template. A new Layer is also created when you create a new project.
What you see in the hub is the Instrument of the default Layer.
Your concern is valid, if I change the Instrument in the hub, I expect it to be default for any new Layer. But a Layer is much more than just the Instrument. We will add a question when you change the Instrument in the hub, and a default Layer already exists, if you want to apply this instrument to the default Layer instead of “xxxx” (previous setting).
