I've created a new part. The original block color & line type were assigned BY BLOCK, the line weight is BY LAYER.
However when I insert the new MVpart it comes in "White". I check the properties which shows, the part to be on the correct layer with the layer color red. Yes, I have created other parts with no problem. Is there a cause for this problem?
Turns out my new element drawing color setting somehow got changed to BYBLOCK. How that happened I don't know. Once it was changed to BYLAYER everything started coming fine. Now I have to try to remember all the display settings changes I made trying to troubleshoot this thing.
