Blocks are imported into a sketch in gray color (used to always to blue once placed on sketch being edited)

Good morning all,

I'm getting frustrated trying to figure out why my old saved blocks are now being brought into an existing sketch in the color gray instead of blue like they used to (since they are under defined if I just lay them anywhere).  If I sketch a line on the same sketch, it appears in blue as it should.  I have my Color Options set to appear as blue for under defined sketches (see attached below).  I recently upgraded from SW2010 to SW2015 and in the older version, whenever I would bring in these same crosshair blocks and lay them on a sketch, they would stand out from the gray background and appear as blue (in fact if I bring any of my old blocks onto a new sketch, they all appear the same - gray).  Now they appear in gray also, just a different shade from the background which I do not like.  I am still using my same color options so I'm confused why they aren't appearing the same.  I can change the color option of sketch inactive from gray to black but then once I'm out of sketch, I don't want all my sketches still appearing black when they should appear gray.  Appreciate any help!  Thanks in advance.
