How to define lines as a pen style

I am trying to clean up our drawing formats and set up some line styles. I am using the pen tables, but it appears that the drawing forms are using lines that controlled by the geometry pen and not the drawing format pen. How do I set the line style of my drawing format to be controlled by Pen 4 (Drawing Frame pen)?

Hi,

1.]

If colored lines are plotted by pen number 1 then these lines are colored by user color

2.]

If you want to set different thickness to colored lines then you have to color them by system colors

3.]

Every system color has assigned its keyword (eg. drawing_color).

You can put the keyword into pen definition, for example:

pen 2 thickness 0.5 cm; drawing color
