Hi and welcome to the forum!

Styles have been made for that.
Instead of the autocorrect feature, create a paragraph style with the border the color and thickness you like then apply this style for your entries.

Please add [Solved] at the beginning of the title in your first post (top of the topic) with the *EDIT button if your issue has been fixed.

The line is a paragraph border. To change the line color, first select the paragraph above the line. On the Menu bar, select Format > Paragraph to open the Paragraph dialog, select the Borders tab and change the Line > Color setting.

The default border color can not be changed if you use '---Enter' to add the border. There is no setting for border color in Options. The other way to change the default color would be to change the color in the Default paragraph style, but that change is not saved if no border line is selected in the style. That only leaves the method proposed by Hagar. Create a paragraph style that includes a border with a different default border color and apply that paragraph style instead of using '---Enter' when you want to add a border.
