When I copy lines and detail components to another file they lose the graphic override that were set in the original view.  Is there any way to get around this?

Why in the world would you ever graphic over-ride a detail line?  ....Just change it!  << That is CAD thinking.

 

Graphic over-rides are all view dependent and never copy.

Graphic overrides are set and controled from the view in which the line work and families were placed and are simply overriding the components default display settings in the Object Styles. When you copy that info into a new view in a new project, they are considered new elements and will adhear to the new views settings until you change them.

 

If you are trying to copy details between projects you can insert the detail view (Insert > Insert from file > Insert View) into other projects and it should retain is graphic settings. If you are copying the detail families then you will want to adjust the Object Styles from within the family environment and then inset the family into each project. 

Caution, when inserting views, Revit may duplicate families and views without asking.

 

Important to note the the projects Object Styles get the priority over a families, so if you open a family from a project, modify graphics and load back in, often you will have to make those same adjustments in the project.

I see what you mean by changing the line, but there are only 3 weights (thin med. and wide) I need more choices.  Also why do hidden and line cone in green?

You can have as many lines as you need - you just have to define them - preferably in your template.  The color is up to you as well.  Read your HELP.
