No Colour on Layout

Can anyone tell me why I'm getting no colour on my layout/section here? Not quite sure what I'm doing wrong, still a bit new to Archicad.

Have a look at the 'drawing' settings for the drawing you placed on the layout.

What pen set is it set to use?

The Pen set is Modelling, I linked an image on the settings when placing a drawing and also what the colour on the section looks like.

Barry meant the settings of your drawing object (ctrl + t) on your layout. Not the settings of your drawings

on this help page look for 'Pen Set'

Thank you so much

Correct.

You want to look at the 'Drawing' settings and not the 'View' settings.
