Stacked walls are in the same place as basic walls. Usually at the bottom of the list. To create the required wall you'd need to have the 2 wall types setup as basic walls first. Then you'd have the masonry wall fixed to height of 7ft, then the concrete band to a fixed height of 1ft from here then the masonry wall on top of that set to variable. You could aslo use a wall sweep in a basic wall for the concrete section of the wall set to be cuttable and to cut the wall at the appropriate height. (sorry to do this option you would need version Shadey HTH.

Could use a profile added in wall creation in the section preview. At a revit 8 preview day it was shown that stacked walls fail to correct ends when you have any angle other than 90 degrees. Bear this in mind before setting them all up

I am finding that instance paramaters do not work in stacked walls. The stacked wall dose not show the instance paramater, and the wall type shows the instance parameter but it is greyed out. I am trying to add a parameter to all items which shows the zone of the building item for larger sites. This scheduling is important as it is being exported and scheduled in a third party program called Insight and we want to seperate areas such as new build to refurbishment. I can combine the parameter with a text field and manually put it in, but i am not sure if the 3dr party program will schedule it properly.

Stacked walls are not really a wall, they are a stack of walls.  As such, the individual walls in a stack work like any other wall.
