If you want to assign a single default layer to all the tools instead of than using ARCHICAD default layer set-up, go to Document > Layers > Layer Extras > Active Layer.
Choose the One Active Layer for all Element Types option from the appearing palette.
Note: This will set the default layer of all element types to the layer of the currently active tool (regardless of any selection)
If you want to return to the previous layer state, choose the Individually set Layers option. This will set the layers back to manually defined layers.
