Steve, I can replicate your issue in version-19-Deluxe (19.2; build 54.2).
In my little Drawing, I have all Objects, including Dimensions, Print Style= "By Layer".
0-Layer Print Style is "Black" (all Print Styles are to set Pen & Brush color only, everything else is "By Object").
"Objects"-Layer is set to the same "Black" Print Style.
"Dimensions"-Layer is set to "Red" Print Style.
When I print, Modelspace or Paperspace (they are both set to the same Print Style Table), and use that Print Style Table, Dimensions Print "Black", just as everything on the 0-Layer.
Oddly and interestingly-- and some workaround might be gained from this: For the Dimensions' Tick, I am using a Block ("User Defined...").
That entity in that Block is on the "Dimensions"-Layer, Pen Color "By Layer", and Print Style "By Layer". That Tick prints "Red", which is what the "Dimensions"-Layer Print Style is set to.
To remedy the issue with the Dimensions not printing correctly, using the "By Layer" Print Style, I tried setting the Print Style for the Dimensions at each of their individual Properties level, setting to both "By Block" and also the "Red" Print Style. Still printed the same color as the 0-Layer Print Style is set to when anything other than "Normal" is used for the 0-Layer Print Style.
Seems to be a long-running (many, many versions) BUG ("many, many versions" because you all report experiencing it all the way back to version-11). There's gotta be a workaround though.
I would think the simplest workaround is to always have the 0-Layer Print Style set to "Normal", and control the printed color of Objects on the 0-Layer, when using Print Styles, either by the Layer color and/or via the Objects' Properties' Print Style settings.
For whatever all that's worth... Sorry for doubting you and your (12 minimum) associates. -Alvin
