There is an option to have the dimensions from a sketch be transferred directly to the drawing views. By default this options is set to "ON" and put every dimensions in black. If you disable this option the text of the dimensions will be pink while the lines of the dimensions remains black.
I'm not sure this is directly related to your problems but I would not be surprised if it was.
It could be several things.
1. Check your Line Format toolbar and make sure that "Color Display Mode" isn't selected.
2. Check your active Layer. It should be set to "Per Standard".
3. Check your Document Properties > Dimension settings to see which Layer the individual dimension types are set to. (Though I think this is less likely.)
If none of those work can you post your drawing and part here for someone to check? (Click on the text "Use advanced editor" at top right of the Reply box, then there will be a link at lower right to attach files.)
Thanks, turns out it was the Color Display Mode
