Renovation style override pen thickness

My 3D walls and 2D lines are set to be "demolished" under the renovation status. They are on the same renovation style override, which has a thickness of .40mm. How do I make my 2D lines show up thicker? - please see attached image, thank you.

Hi dhnguyen,
Check menu View > On-Screen Options > True Line Weight and see the real line weight of your pens.
There is also an option for bold cut lines. I you don´t want, uncheck it.
Hope that helps.

Thanks for your response. I had it set to "true line weight".
I noticed that if i changed the original color of the 2D line into the same yellow color that I selected for the renovation style overwrite, then the lines will show up with the same thickness as the 3D wall lines... But then that defeats the purpose of not being able to use the default "Existing Plan" Renovation Filter Option.
All of my lines will have the same thickness under the existing plan.

this is happening in a Layout view, right?
Check the renovation rules for similar yellow colors...

AC18, an older version, does not have the option to Override Pen Color Only, which is available in AC23. Somewhere between these two versions this option was added.
