Line type color not updating in model space

Can anybody remind me why when I choose a new layer (which happens to have a different colour association) the colour of the new drawn line stays the same?

I understand there is some setting you type in the command line to solve this problem but I am unable to find what that is.

 

Many thanks.

Hi,

 

open your property-window (<Ctrl> <1>), if you have not selected an object it shows you the current drawing- and view-settings. And in your case the current draw-color is not "byLayer", it's set to blue. Change it to "byLayer" (or look to sysvar CECOLOR (>>>details<<<).
