How many of you actually use stacked walls?

 

I have found them to be problematic when trying to place Keynote text in a section detail.

Also have found them to be tricky when it comes to foundation footers because it treats the wall as an architectural wall and not a structural wall.

 

Anybody else have problems that I should be aware of or any solutions?

I find stacked walls usefule for initial placement but after that they can cause other problems.  That is when I like to right click on them and select "breakup" to turn them back into stacked... single walls.

I didn't realize it would be that simple to change the wall back to it's original type.  So basically I could draw walls using stacked walls, and then choose "breakup" when it comes time to detail a section?  Awesome!

 

What were some of the other problems you faced when using stacked walls?  I haven't worked with it much so I am not sure what to expect.

OK, I now have some experience with drawing stacked walls!  I did encounter a problem however.  When I used the 'draw wall by face' tool (somewhere under 'Massing and Site' tab) it would draw fine if you did the 'chain-select' option.  But even then, every time I 'break up' a stacked wall, the upper part of the wall "flips" on itself and you now have the inside of the wall facing the outside; totally off of the wall beneath it as well!  So this can be fixed easily enough by going to plan view and selecting the "flip" arrows next to the wall.  What I want to know is, how can this issue be resoved WITHOUT having to do that extra step?
