I'm having a very annoying problem where the color and lineweight of my alignment in a viewport is not what it's set to be. I have an alignment with a style that sets all the linework components to a layer named C-STRM-CNTR-N, the color is set to BYLAYER, the linetype set to Continuous, and lineweight set to .80mm (see style_and_layer_screenshots.png). The layer C-STRM-CNTR-N has Cyan as the color, which shows in the Alignment Style dialog box (see style_and_layer_screenshots.png). In the model space everything looks fine (see c3d_model_space_screenshot.png). But in my layout, the alignment is a different color and lineweight (see c3d_layout_screenshot.png).
At first I thought maybe the alignment wasn't on the correct layer, but I checked and it's set correctly. Then I checked to see if the layer C-STRM-CNTR-N had a different color set for the viewport through the layer manager, but it's set to Cyan just like it's supposed to be. I went to the model space and noticed the color is correct. Frustrated and at a loss, I closed C3D, then reopened it and the problem is still there.
Anyone know why I can't change the lineweight nor the color of the alignment in this viewport? If I change either of those two settings in the Alignment Style Dialog box nothing changes, but the linetype does change. What the heck is going on?
We are having the same issue with Civil 3D 2012. The appears to be drawing specific and opening on another workstations does not change the display.
I just ran into this with Civil 3D 2012 on a drawing made in 2010. I fixed this by making a new alignment style that was exactly the same as before and it worked. Hope this helps!
I found the problem. If you use a color that is not on the ACAD pallet the colors will not work correctly. For instance, I had a color that was a true color instead of a standard ACAD color, which causes it not to show up correctly. I changed the color to a non-true color and it worked.
I haven't checked to see if this is fixed in 2014 as I quit using any colors that weren't part of the standard pallet.
