Wall lines showing through exterior in elevation view.

I can't find out why the walls show through the exterior on either side of the window in the elevation view. I've tried playing with some layer options and didn't find a solution. I'm thinking it's because they occupy the same space because it's doing the same thing with the roof, but the walls automatically snap so it's not like I dragged the interior wall too far into the exterior.

I think if you go to the rooms at the second floor and DEFAULT THE CEILING HEIGHTS,  this should fix all.


I rarely rarely rarely change the ceiling heights from the default heights.  Maybe you do this to do the auto rebuild roofs,  I do  not auto build roofs.  Point is,  I rarely see this problem,  maybe because I leave the default ceiling heights in place.

Thanks for the help, I'm still not able to fix it though. I don't think I fully understand what you mean by pulling the exterior wall over. Did you have the 2nd floor exterior wall take the place of the triangular attic walls? I'm still playing around with it and the problem seems to come from either where the 2nd floor exterior wall ends, or where that wall meets an attic wall. Should I not have attic walls the same elevation as non-attic walls?

      I use Chief architect pro x14. Is there a way to lock wall length once done with imputing all your walls? Every time I try and use the room divider tool my wall always changes lengths; I thinks its just because of the angle I watched a video on how to fix it and was just wondering if there an option to lock your walls from the dimensions changing and not just being able to select them because of the active layer display . I'm new to Chief architect and when I used Revit it had a lock constraint next to the dimensions line, so I never had this problem before. Does Chief Architect not have this as a feature?

      I have dragged a PDF of a rug to my elevation but as you can see, I'm not able to have the rug show up on the wall. What do I need to do?

      I have a question on creating wall caps.
      I have a plan with 12" Concrete Wall w/ 2" interior drywall for the basement exterior walls. 
      The 1st floor has 6" Siding exterior walls.
      I have a U-Shaped stairs from basement to 1st floor in back left corner.
      I want to place a wall cap over exposed basement wall where basement meets 1st floor in stair well.
      How do I handle this?  I can't find in documentation anywhere.
      Sample 3D Picture with red arrow where I want "wall cap".

      Is it possible to model this in CA? (Reasonably close.) How would I do it?

      How would I make one marker such as the one I've shown below? This is for a shower and there's just not that much room for 4.
