Can anyone inform me how to change the demolished and temporary appearances of non-structural elements such as railiings, plumbing fixtures etc?

It is straighforward to use phase overides to change the appearance of Walls etc that are either demolished or temporary, but however you change these appearances non structural elements stubbornly remain with a dotted blue outline.  I want demolished railings and other non-structural elements to appear with a red hidden line style but have been unable to find out how this can done. I have exhuasted WikiHelp, object styles, family properties etc etc!

I think the attached image is what you are trying to accomplish.  I just changed the graphic overrides in the phasing dialogue box to have red lines (in both projection and cut) and a hidden linetype.  I chose a smaller scale linetype so that the lines did not seem to run together.
