Change the Color of an Object
You can change the color
of an object by reassigning it to another layer, by changing the
color of the layer the object is on, or by specifying a color for
the object explicitly.
have three choices for changing the color of an object:
the object to another layer with a different color. If an object's color
is set to BYLAYER, and you reassign the object to a different layer,
it acquires its color from the new layer.
- Change the color assigned to the layer
that the object is on. If an object's color is set to BYLAYER, it
acquires the color of its layer. When you change the color assigned
to a layer, all objects on that layer assigned the BYLAYER color
are updated automatically.
- Specify a color for an object to override
the layer's color. You can specify the color of each object explicitly.
If you want to override the layer-determined color of an object
with a different one, change an existing object's color from BYLAYER
to a specific color, such as red.
If you want to set a specific color for all
subsequently created objects, change the current color setting on
the Properties toolbar from BYLAYER to a specific color.
