Layers settings acting funny?

Hi All,

I am creating cable harness through a series of points in an assembly.
Since we need to use different coloured cables, I have created new layers
(Blue_color_wire_points, Red_Color_wire_points etc) in the assembly. The
problem I am facing is that whenever I create a new datum point, that point
is going into 3-4 different layers that I mentioned before instead of
staying in the default "All_datum_points" or "All_Std_points".

Since I blank out these other layers of wire-points for ease of use,
everytime I create a point, the point is blanked out and I need to go to one
of these layers, then do "switch Item" to bring it to the current Active
layer. This is getting very fustrating since I have to edit each point to
see where it ends up in space!! Is it a problem of settings or I am making
a mistake while creating points/layers ? How do I make the points I create
stay on to one of the layers I specify all the time which, when needed, can
be moved to new layer once I am done with routing cable through them.

I use Pro/E 2001.

Thanks in adance,
Jaya
