Why is my sheet title block information RED? how to change?

working for DC architectural firm.
they just got all new licenses of AC14 and I noticed that in my 'layouts' the sheet title border information is "RED" yet in my master, in my layout settings....everywhere else the sheet 2d linework is another color...where do I change the layout to be "black"?

I know this may sound like a simple questions but I've seached all over and can't seem to find where to change the sheet 2d linework border edge to be a "black" look?

thanks in advance.

Re-read the first reply from Eduardo.

This is a preference setting in the On-Screen options in your Work Environment.


When you are editing the actual master, all the colours will look as you expect.

When you a viewing a normal layout page, the master will appear with a red pen (or what ever colour you have set it up in the WE).

It will not affect the printed output.


It is just so you can easily see what is in the master and you know you can't edit it without actually opening the master layout.

Thanks Barry. I understand this now. It didn't happen in SE17 but it is a logical feature.
