Interesting problem: In AutoCAD Mechanical 2014, I created a new layer. I set the color for magenta. Then as I was working, I noticed the drawing (which I did not create) had too much magenta on many layers, so I changed the color of the new layer I just created to color 23 (brownish). However, as I'm working on the drawing, the color will revert to magenta all by itself! This has happened several times; and I can't see what causes it. There's no pattern in my work that seems to trigger the reversion.
"A test: put a small X in the layer name, at the front, and see if the problem suddenly stops or something in your program complains"
I did place a small x in the layer name; and the problem seems to have gone away. Not sure if this is an actual solution, because it was just a non-automated layer in the first place. But it seems to be working, so I'll take it!
