Every time I create a new Stack, the Dock icon is automatically set to

Sort by: Name Display as: Stack View Content as: Automatic

and I have to change it to my preferred settings:

Sort by: Kind Display as: Folder View Content as: List

Can anyone tell me how to adjust the defaults display settings for new Stacks icons, please? I've searched and only found one instance of an answer (which was 'no' but I hope the replier was uninformed!).

Surely there must be a way to change these defaults?
