Setting the layer color
Each layer in a drawing is assigned a color. progeCAD uses the BYLAYER color as the default color setting for entity creation so that new entities are drawn in the color of the layer on which they are inserted (set in the Drawing Settings dialog box).
Using the progeCAD Explorer, you can set or change the color assigned to a layer. With the direct-editing feature, you can click on the color you want to change, and then select a new color from the dialog box that appears. Changing a layer's color automatically changes the color of all entities on that layer with the BYLAYER color.
To change the layer color
TIP Right-click the name of the layer you want to change, and from the shortcut menu, select Properties and change the layer color.
NOTE You can also assign a specific color to an entity, which overrides the layer's color setting. When you create a new entity, use the Settings > Colors > Select Color command to change the current color. For an existing entity, select the entity, right-click for the shortcut menu, and choose Properties. You can then change the entity's color in the Entity Properties dialog box.
