Paper Space Viewport Regen Show Bylayer Color Change

Hello CAD Folks,

I have a drawing with text in model space and viewport setup of that drawing in paper space. In the layer manager, I changed the bylayer color of the text (not override color). When I observe the text through the viewport, the text bylayer color shows the same – as if I had not changed anything. Come to find out, when I click inside the viewport and enter the Regen command, the changed bylayer color appears! This should not be necessary. Is there a setting that needs to be applied? Or, could this be related to a compromising system in my computer?

OPTIONS > SYSTEM tab.

 

Select the item in the green box shown in the attached image.

My advice is not to do it though.  REGEN is a hog and will take more time to change layouts.  How much more time depends on what kind of hot rod video processor system you have.

I personally am more than happy with REGEN on demand.

Rather than switching  to Model Space then back to Paper Space the REGENALL command regenerates the entire drawing and refreshes all viewports. REA is the default command alias.
