I have an idea for an improved wall cleanup tool, this might be as a second step to the existing cleanup tool but the basic idea is you select a wall intersection like you do now with the wall cleanup tool. Then revit pulls all of the walls back away from the intersection so nothing is joined. Then it gives you a trim tool that selects each component of the wall and let you trim/extend that to any other component of one of the other walls next to it. This way you could select your gyp layer on one wall and trim/extend it to the adjacent wall, then select your mtl. stud and trim/extend it to the mtl stud in a different wall and ultimately make a true custom wall join.

Make sure you thouroghly understand wall layer priorities.  That may solve your frustrations.

WWHub is definitely right, having the right priorities is Key, i'd say that 95% of my wall joins are either natually correct or 1-3 variations on the wall join tool... but there is always that other 5% that require getting creative to make it come together.  most of my problems arise at acute angles, or where 3+ walls come together at once. Definitely not the typical case, but frustrating when your under a deadline and you cant even get the wall to look correct.

Okay, I see on the wall composition where the priorities are set up.  Makes perfect sense when joined two walls with different layers.  Thanks.  Still a good idea up above because the wall clean ups aren't great at angles or difference wall materials.

FYI, I also resolved my issue.  Just using the wall join tool, I had to click the miter button from the Butt button.  Cryingsay that anywhere but here, HE-He-He!)  MMMM, I think Facebook needs a Butt Button!

Okay, thanks all, great advice.  Back to work!
