I have a strange case where a portion of a wall actual extends below the top of the foundation wall.  I created a wall that contains a reveal at the base. (this works well)

I also had a bright idea to include the sill plate on top of the foundation wall so i can schedule it, so i created a stacked foundation wall that contains both a footing and a sill plate wall type.  (this works well)

 The problem that I am having is that they aren't playing nicely with each other - the wall reveal wants to cut the foundation wall, or in some cases just cut the sill plate.  I've tried joining, not joining, cut, not cut, but can't get this to clean up the way i want.

I'm also having problems with the wall reveal at the corners of the wall - it wants to cut the perpendicular wall when joined.  I've noticed that this is only an issue for the walls that have been modified using "Edit Profile".

This is really frustrating me to no end.....help!

Instead of using a reveal, why edit the wall structure properties - edit the vertical wall structure so that you can pull the face element up?

Well, I spoke too soon.  I prefer the reveal simply for the fact that i don't have to adjust every single wall and the base height.  The corners are also not cleaning up for some reason, except now none of them clean up (previously only the walls who's profile had been edited were causing problems...).
