Default Settings or Template for Project Page (Mastering)

I use Studio One's Project Page whenever I do mastering. I have some pretty specific settings that I like for my workflow, however these settings always seem to be reset whenever I start a new project.

Specifically, the settings I tend to reach for are:
- FFT on the spectrum meter
- Spectrum meter average set to medium (or slow)
- Smooth button enabled
- LUFS, not LU on the loudness readout
- K-12 metering (though not all the time)
- Bonus setup timesaver: my limiter of choice set as a Master post fader effect

This would shave off so much annoying setup time for every session I do, keeping me in a flow state and also just simply saving valuable time!

Is there some way we could have a "set as default" for settings? Or even be able to start from a template in the project page?

Thanks :)

++ UPVOTE!  I'm a new Studio One convert (from Logic Pro). I love the Project Page workflow and was very surprised Templates do not exist for it.

Is there an update in sight? I would love to make Mastering Templates for different purposes.

1. For my Beats / Instrumentals (pretty aggressive mastering - squash it loud)

2. For Bands / My Students

The Project Page needs templates just like the Song Page to capture default parameter preferences, Master & Listen Bus plugin chains, etc.
