Points created are on wrong layer

I have spent over an hour trying to figure this out, and it's probably something simple I'm overlooking. I don't understand why something can't actually be on the layer that Properties says it's on, but I'll save those complaints for the feedback site. When I create design points, they will not display until I thaw a layer that the survey points are on. I have double checked these settings: On Toolspace Settings tab, under Points-Commands-CreatePoints, Default Layer is "C-P-POINTS-TEMP". Default Style is set to Point Style=SPOTS-TEMP, and Point Label Style is set to TEMP-POINT#-ELEVATION-DESCRIPTION. When I check these styles, they are both set to the layer "C-P-POINTS-TEMP". Yet every point I create ends up on the layer "C-E-POINTS_FIELDWORK_11-14-11. What am I missing here?

Take a look at the option to disable Description Keys.  Set it to true if you want the point defaults to be used.

Looks like the help file tells you everything you could possibly want to know about description keys, except how to disable them. Can you point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

I spoke too soon. I found it. It's under settings on the points creation dialog box.
