When I draw new linework and text it shows up greyed out, even though it should be showing up full tone. Curiously, blocks that are inserted on the same layer as the linework and text come in full tone.
The attached image provides an example of what's happening (it's difficult to see the greyed out text reading "TEST", the leader, and a sawtooth section of polyline).
Xrefed drawings are displayed at full tone.
Linework from earlier sessions are displayed at full tone - this is only affecting new work.
This happens only in this drawing.
This happens on different sessions of C3D (i.e. different computers).
This happens on when drawing on any layer.
The layers are unlocked.
This occurs in both model and paperspace.
The drawing has been audited (no errors were found).
Everything prints out properly.
I suspect there's a variable that deals with visibility has been inadverdantly changed in this particular drawing.
Any ideas? Thanks!

Well it's Transpearancy after all.
First thing done was select the top VP & open Properties Palette (which revaels) 90% Trans. is applied to the VP's.
Go to Transp. icon & Toggle it off and things appear normally.
I would change the values to zero at VP object level in Properties though.
I just checked: the command COLOR is set to BYLAYER.
I changed COLOR to magenta and drew a polyline that was greyed out version of magenta on a layer assigned color "white" in the Layer Manager window, so it's working. Something else is going on, though.
Does this correct if you toggle hardware acceleration on/off?
VP Transparency in the viewports are all set to "0".
New lines and text come in full tone after the Wblock of the entire drawing is inserted into a new drawing, however the greyed out issue persists with text, leaders, and dimensions that were drafted in the original drawing.
