Answer

In Advance Steel there are two categories of drawings, general drawings and workshop drawings.

If the "Use color ByLayer in overview drawings, for visible lines" default is set to 1, then the color of visible lines display in general drawings will be the same as the color used from the layer corresponding with the model.
