Profile grid and text not bylayer

When I create a profile, then explode it, none of the text or lines are bylayer.  My company wants everything to be bylayer.  I can't figure out which style controls the profile to make everything bylayer after it is exploded.  Thanks.

Go to Options, scroll way to the right and find the AEC Editor tab. In the right-hand column, de-select Maintain Resolved Layer, Color, Linetype.

Thank you so much! I looked everywhere but couldn't figure it out.
