why are coloured drawings printing black/grey?

Help! I am having a senior moment. I've used colour shaded fills and coloured zones on drawings. When I place these on layouts, they show, and print, black and grey. When I print the same drawings from my sheet using the marquee tool, they print correctly in colour. There is a setting somewhere (knowing Archicad probably a number of settings I need to adjust) but I can't remember what they are and where I can find them.

It will be in the settings for the drawings that you have placed on the layouts.


There is also a 'Document Setting ' for the PDF when you are publishing and also printer settings, but it doesn't sound like it is those.

Thanks Barry. I really didn't know where to look and it wasn't too hard at all!
