In my Roof Plan view, looking down at the top of the walls, it displays a line at the exterior face of the stud in addition to the outer faces of the wall.  It does not display a line for any of the other layers of the wall.  How do I control the visibility of these layers?  Also, the face of stud lines do not meet at the corner, even though the Floor Plan (cut) view of the corner displays correctly.

Both walls are the same wall type and both have the same base level and height.  The walls have plaster and gypsum board on the outside, and gypsum board only on the inside.

I have looked in the Help menu but can't figure out how to control the display or to clean up the corners.

See attached image for an example.

My graphic display is set to Hidden Line.  I am using Revit 2012.

Are you cutting the wall or above it, that makes a difference?  If you are cutting the wall and your view settings are medium or fine, then you will see all the layers.

 

If you are above the wall, then this looks like you may have something else here. What it is I would not know.  Are these really layered walls or thin walls against a thicker wall?

The cut plan is above the walls, so I am looking at the top of the wall, not cutting it.

I copied the walls off to the side and the lines still looked the same, so I know it was not another object.

Then I edited the vertical structure of the wall type and locked all the layers at the top so that there could be no Extension.  This fixed the linework problem - now it shows only the outer faces of the wall. 

However, I wonder why it showed the extra lines even though all the layers were stopping at the same height?

You have pointed out something that I did not know.  I have verified that Revit does do this.

 

I have never seen this - probably because I typically put a wall sweep / cornice (coping) on top of my walls.
