Drawing entity colors not honored

Question asked by Justin Lee on Mar 28, 2016

Ive got several templates setup for drawings that use specific colors / layers for certain types of dimensions and annotations, etc.

e.g. Dimensions are created on a layer called "dim", and entities created on the dim layer are assigned the color r170, g170, b255.

Up until today all my template colors came through perfectly.  Now, though I've hit a wrong key somehow and every dimension or annotation in the drawing view is displayed in the default colors specified in Options -> Color.


Even if I manually specify a color for a given entitiy using the "line format" tools, the newly specified it is not displayed.  Only the defaults specified in Options -> Color are being displayed.


Adding insult to injury, if I open an old drawing (created when my color templates did work), for a brief moment when the file first opens, I can see the line colors Im expecting, then they quickly switch to the default colors. See attached screen shots for an example of this behavior -- now you see color, now you dont.


So, only those colors explicitly defined in "Options > Color" are being displayed, and any user defined / template colors are being ignored.


I'm sure I tapped a key combo that screwed this up, but I can't for the life of me figure out how to go back.


Any help is much appreciated!
