Color for drawing new entities [Truecolor/COlorbook] <BYLAYER>: To select

index color, BYBLOCK, or BYLAYER. To select a True Color, choose True color.
To select a color from a color book, choose COlor book.
To enter a numeric value of an index color
Enter the index color number from the color palette (1-255), 0 for BYLAYER,
or 256 for BYBLOCK.
To enter the name of a standard index color
Select the name of the standard index color. The seven standard index color
names are red, yellow, green, cyan, blue, magenta, and white.
Color names are displayed in the prompt box that appears after you choose the Color command. You can select a color name by typing the first letter of the color you want as it appears in the prompt box and then pressing Enter.
To set color to BYLAYER
To draw all entities in the default color set for the current layer, choose BYLAYER.
To set color to BYBLOCK
To draw entities in the default color (white or black, depending on your system settings) until they are grouped into a block, choose BYBLOCK. After you insert the block into a drawing, it assumes the currently selected color for new entities.
If a block contains a mixture of colors, inserting blocks when the color is
set to BYBLOCK can produce unpredictable results.

Red, Green, Blue: Enter the Red, Green, and Blue values, separated by a comma,
for example: 15,105,210.
To select a color from a color book
Enter Color Book name: Enter the name of the desired color book. This is the
name of the color book, not the .acb filename. The color book must be located
in the folder where progeCAD searches for color books. By default, color books
are located in the same folder where you installed progeCAD. To verify the
folder location, choose Options from the Tools menu, click the Paths/Files tab,
and find the Color Book folder in the Paths list.
