      Hello to all of the Group.

      I'm detailing a project in Solidworks 2016 and I have a problem.

      The final client already has their layer standardization and I created all the layers as the project should be done, for example, the external lines should be cyan and the dashes should be red.

      When I select, the entire block changes only to one color, and the child lines do not change.

      Does anyone know how to modify all drawing lines?

          Layers aren't the way to go for this in Solidworks.  You need to set the desired colors at Tools > Options > System Options > Colors.  (I personally think that's one of the settings that should be in Document Properties instead of System Options, but that's another story.)

              Hi Glenn, tank you for the tip.

              Taking advantage, I would like to know how to put some items with other layer, existing type, new, being that in my assembly have items that are new and existing.
              When I select it, everything changes to the selected layer.
              about the detailing in Solidworks, the courses I took did not abort this as a very important item.
              Thank you very much in advance
