In the past, I have always assigned my plotted linelight based on the layer property. Recently I have wanted to experiment with the C3D NCS templates, but have noticed the lineweights are all set to "default". I have also noticed that their is a plot style assigned per layer that reads "color_#". Is there a ctb or stb that works with this plot style setting in layers manager? Or can someone clarify what this plot style column is for in layer manager?

The plot style column in Layer Manager is for when you are using Named Plot Styles not Color Dependent Plot Styles. To convert your drawing from one to the other, type CONVERTPSTYLES at the command prompt.
