I am learning revit 9, and I am viewing a wall in plan showing fine detail, but i can not snap to the core structure of the wall, is there a setting I can change for that? My measurements are taken from the wall structure, so to not be able to snap to the structure is messing everything up.

Not sure if I understand you .... I assume you mean "snap to" when you are dimensioning?  If so, look at your options bar after starting your dimensioning and change the prefer pull-down to "faces of core".  You can also use the tab key when you hover over a wall to "snap" to the wall faces, faces of core or wall or core centerlines.

I am looking at the wall.  I see the siding, the sheathing, the structure, and the drywall.  I want an interior wall to run parallel to this wall with 10 feet between the structure (2x4s) of one wall and the structure of the other.  I drew the interior wall, but I want to move it to the right spot, so I select it and with the dimensions that show up, I grab the yellow square and hover over the wall where I want to select.  I hit tab to cycle through, but it never snaps to it.  Is there a way to get the wall parallel and exactly 10 feet apart from structure to structure?

Put the wall in ...dimension it....pick the wall & select move .... the dimension will turn blue .... change it to what you want.... delete the dimension or keep it .... it's up to you.

 

As you place the wall, you will also get temporary dimensions which you can grab and move to the correct face (tab).  Make sure you are grabbing the right grip!

 

This all works very easy so work with it.

That is exactly what I was trying to do.  I thought I wasn't snapping on the structure, because I went back later and noticed that there was a difference of 10' 1/16" instead of 10' even, but It turns out my exteriors wall were moving.  They were locked to objects and moved as I moved those objects.  I learned how to pin walls, so I shouldn't have that problem any more.  I am so glab there is a forum for Revit questions, and even more, that there are people offering their knowledge.
