See attached Photo's. I've tried to align the siding which worked great in Hidden but in Realistic the pattern does not align. How do I align the realistic texture to suit the hidden. The align command does not seem to work in this situation. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Sorry please look at the left hand photo in the screen shot (post #1). It shot both of my desktops. (one of which was looking at a similar issue). Ive reattached the screenshots below.

I tired that but that appears to only move the pattern to match the hidden view 6" profile I have set up. The walls on the upper floor where drawn on a floor x floor or floor to soffit or top of roof to soffit basis because they would crop at the corners of the building. Please bear with me I'm new to revit and this is my first project. I am replicating existing conditions of a building (for training purposes). Unfortunately I believe I picked one of the most complicated projects. This used to be an old church and the bottom floor is completely open. I'm sure there is either timber or steel holding up the rest of the frame but I need to finalize the shell building exercise of this building. I had a lot of difficulty getting the walls to attach to one another as well.

One of my photo's is taken at a spot where the roof extends below the normal roof line at a corner.

The bottom floor worked out fine

If you look on the, third floor, one wall goes from t.o. third floor to soffit level 2 & the siding assembly extends down to the u/s of joist below. The wall next to that is similar only it goes to soffit level 3.

The shed roof had to have the walls drawn ontop of the roof (to avoid corner clipping. (soffit level 3 attached to u/s of shed soffit)

The walls dont want to join on the second level for some reason so I'm assuming I'm missing something. The gable end had to be extended to the t.o the lowest roof (as their was gaps between the roof/joist/wall)

The only thing I can think I can do is delete the wall that is going from level 3 to level 3 soffit. Make a wall span across level 3 to level 2 soffit & then build a wall overtop from level 2 soffit to level 3 soffit to finish off the shed dormer

Visually this works but I don't understand why Revit requires you to stack tyhe walls like this. Maybe I'm doing something wrong or maybe this is how it works can someone explain this to me?
