Need Help. Created a new molding but cant manipulate it. I created a soldier course molding and really like the way it works except i can Miter the ends or trim or even bring another layer to the front to cover it.. When you open the plan pull up the front elevation and youll see what im talking about. Ideas Please???

The molding line on the left has 2 moldings attached to it. The default square, and your brick.

 

One way to do this is to use a single molding polyline. Extend the one you have down on both sides. CAD Detail From View makes it easy to get the polyline aligned. Draw it there, cut and paste hold position in the elevation. Apply the molding.

Why would a room divider not connect properly to a wall. Same plan as above. trying to separate the kitchen, dining and living rooms. I have actually moved exterior step out wall as well to try to accommodate a proper connection and still not working. Screen Shot included too.

It does not show a problem here, but try zooming in and making sure the room divider is really connected.

Are you sure it is a connection issue and not an Off angle issue with the 1/2 wall?  click the yellow triangle it should tell you....

 

here are a couple of possible fixes for the missing drywall on the end of the full wall where the 1/2 wall meets it too....

I opened the pony wall and the thickness was set a 0. Not sure how that happened. I reset it at 4 1/2" and with a little repositioning everything fell into place. Thanks guys...

That's because its a pony wall with the main (upper) wall type set to be a room divider but with the lower set to be displayed in plan views...

...Its just doing as it was told.

 

I think you're probably making that spot a lot more complicated than it needs to be.  There are other ways as well but maybe try something like this instead. It's probably the quickest and easiest...

Ahhhhh   good find ,  I have never seen a 1/2 wall setup that way  :)  so I never dug that deep  ....... I now see he did say it was a Ponywall ( common term here) but I didn't think he had made one in CA for it, normally I just set Railing , then solid then set the newel height to the wall height needed.
