Maintaining a line weight and color default.

I am trying to have my tools default to by layer settings and have my layers maintain their line weights for all new drawings. I created a template with layers and set everything the way I wanted. I saved both the template and the workspace. Yet when I start a new drawing from that template, the layers reset the line weight, and the tools reset their line color. I have also tried checking the "Apply general property settings to all tool presets" in preferences.

Read up on property presets you have turned them off but I think you might want them on. Each tool can have more then one combination of properties the tool defaults to the same set of properties you used the last time you used it. You can switch between property presets depending on what you are doing. Turning this off makes tc work similar to AutoCAD which can be time consuming.
For line thickness, colour and line type.
I set all my properties to by layer and then change the settings  in the layers palette.
