Entity Properties

A geometric entity at least three properties - color, layer, and linetype. Some have fourth, thickness, and a fifth, linetype scale. By default, color and lintype are BYLAYER. This means that the color and linetype of an entity depend on the color and linetype assignemnt of the layer where the entity is placed.

If you change the color or linetype assignment of a layer, the color and linetype of an entity that is BYLAYER change as well. If the color or linetype of an entity is not BYLAYER, any change to the color or llinetype assignment of the layer will have no effect on the entity.
