I made some draperies (wall based family and three sweeps). On some walls they on the correct way, but on other walls, they don't. I attached a photo to show what I'm talking about.

 

On the right wall, the valance is cut off by the wall. It's like the sweep is inside the wall, and it really shouldn't be. The way the draperies are on the other wall is correct, but how do I get that effect everywhere? I really don't know what I'm doing wrong. I tried reversing the wall, I've tried putting the draperies on the back of the wall, nothing really works.

 

Any ideas?

Your problem is how you built your family.  The elements you created have probably associated themselves with the center of the wall rather than the face.  Elements like this are better created as face based rather than wall based.  For wall based families,

 

For wall based families, I like to start with a reference plane (always named ... creation?) which is well off the face of away from the wall.  I dimension this plane off the face I want it to move relative to and label it.  Quite often this label is the offset for the family from a face of the wall such as window setback.  Then I build the family around this plane.  Then I change the offset of this plane so that everything moves to where it belongs.
