Change the Color and Linetype in a Block

You can change the color and linetype of the objects within a block only if the objects in that block were created with floating properties.

Blocks containing objects with floating properties inherit their color and linetype from the layer on which they are inserted. Depending on how the objects in the block were created, blocks can also inherit floating color and linetype properties from the current explicit color and linetype that you set to override the layer settings.

If a block was not created using objects with floating color and linetype properties, the only way to change these properties is to redefine the block.
