I'm new here & on CA x10, so pls be patient with me.  Drawing an exterior wall around for a house.  How do I change part of that exterior wall settings to fit settings of that room.  Change the exterior wall in that room from 4" to 6" but i want that exterior wall to remain 4" going down the line in other rooms??

You can just draw in the wall type you need, or break the wall in 2 places, select the section you want to change and change the wall type.

FWIW, I have different wall types saved in my user Library.  When I want to switch from drawing one type to another I just select the new wall type from my user library and start drawing.  

 

The solutions Eric listed are also very common.

If you  have Wall Types save in your Library, Selecting one of them will initiate th Walls Tool using that Wall Type.  It's not 100% seamless because you will be starting a new wall - but it definitely eliminates the need to "Break" the wall and then edit the Wall Type after creation.

Don't forget that you can select a new wall type from Wall Default, the Library, or a toolbar icon, etc, and then just draw over an existing wall to replace it with the new wall type.

I do that sometimes but it will eliminate any existing doors and windows so I avoid that in most cases.
