the object to another layer with a different linetype. If an object's linetype
is set to BYLAYER, and you reassign the object to a different layer, it

change an existing object's linetype from BYLAYER to a specific
linetype, such as DASHED.
If you want to set a specific linetype for all
subsequently created objects, change the current linetype setting
on the Properties toolbar from BYLAYER to a specific linetype.
