Demolition lines not printing as red

Not applicable

I'm working on a extension project in Archicad 19 which has a few things to be demolished. They show up as red both in my model view and in my saved views but as soon as I put them onto a layout, the red colour disappears (the dotted lines remain). All my saved views have been set to the renovation filter "04 Construction" and I've overridden the to be demolished status to show red. The pen set has the correct red colour in it.

I get the feeling there is a setting somewhere I have missed but I can't find anything about it in the help guide.

Did you check which pen set is assigned to the placed view (drawing) on the layout?

'07-Penset-GAs-50-Black' is the pen setting I'm using. the red colour 252 appears as red in the pens and colours but still prints as a grey colour.

In your Drawing Selection Settings of the view placed on the layout do you have Colours set to "Defined by Penset" or "Greyscale"?

Thanks s2art! That's exactly what the problem was.
