For some reason when I place new text or line work in a file it is fine, but when I save the drawing, close it and re-open it all of the text and line work found in model space goes gray. Yet if I place new text and use the match property command on text placed previously, that is now gray, and use it on new text, the new text recieves the attributes of what the previously placed text has minus the appearance of being gray. In my drawing I am using a shape file and a data connect image through planning and analysis. Any help would be appreciated.
I discovered the problem. In Planning and Analysis in the Display manager under the Task Pane there is a default group called Map Base. When I expand it I can select or deselect Default. When I deselect Default all of my text displays as it was intended to display. I am not sure why that is.
