Changing Active Level and Attributes

When switching active levels using the attributes tool bar is it possible to have the associated attributes change with selected level?   They are already set in the Level manager. I used to be able to do this in the past.  Example.  My active level is "Trees" and is the color "green".  I need to change the active level to "sidewalk" which uses the color "yellow".  In the past when I would switch between levels the associated attributes would change at the same time.  Now I have to change the level and the attributes separately.  using v8i 10
