Line Won't Color by Layer

by Anonymous
(Indianapolis, Indiana)

A new line drawn will always be yellow. I can't get it to use the default "bylayer" color.

I can manually change to bylayer in properties box, but I don't want to have to change each after it's drawn.

How can I get line to draw layer color?

PS or MS?

Or you seeing this problem in both Model Space and Paper Space?

If you are drawing in Paper Space be sure that the view port color for the layer of the line is set appropriately.
