I have to deal with a lot of surveys at work and occasionally I have a surveyor override the properties of an object to something other than BYLAYER. After I throw my mouse against the wall and contemplate using a new surveyor, I remember that I can use the SETBYLAYER tool to clean up my drawing.

Just type in SETBYLAYER in the command line and you can change the Color, Linetype and Lineweight of an object you can even change Byblock to Bylayer!
