I created a furring wall type for tile backing to be applied to a concrete wall. I chose not to create a unique concrete wall type with tile backing becasue the instances where tile backing is required along the length of the concrete wall are few and far between.

My problem is illustratedin the attached pdf. The metal stud structure layer of the tile backing is trying to clean up with the adjoining concrete structure layer of adjoining walls. I have sketched a desired result. Am I missing something?

 

Thanks

I use walls in a similar situation and have always been able to trim the two interior walls together (or drag the end of each wall back and trim).  I would also play around with where the location lines of the walls are (for instance the 2 tile walls will be set to the "Inside Face of Wall", whereas the foundation walls will be set to "Outside Face of Wall". 

It also appears that you have the furred wall overlapping the foundation wall, which might also be causing some of the problems. 

Tip - you can join the two parallel walls together (as long as they are touching....) to remove the dark cut lines between them, and assume penetrations made by windows and doors.

The following HELP topic may explain why this is happening ....: Applying a Function to a Layer of a Compound Structure

 

It explains wall cleanups.

I created a wall type to represent the tiled part and moved it up to the main wall.  It cleans up with the perpendicular tiles wall, or if hte adjacent walls aren't tiled then use the disallow join function.  Joining the walls allows them to act as one for inserts.  See attached screenshot.
