 +  * [Q] How do you change the color of a Sketch Symbol?
 +    * Appears you can only change the color of the parent, not the child. So if your parent sketch symbol is black and you then insert into a drawing. You CANNOT change the child instance to another color such as red. So the color is either ByLayer or I'm guessing ByBlock.
