As shown in the attached image, my New Constrcution phase walls are cutting my existing phase walls even when the veiw properties are set on Existing and Show All. Not sure what else to try. Any suggestions? Hint: the slots in my wall are where the New Construction walls exist in the New Construction phase. the current view does not show New Construction phase elements.

You fell victim to one of the classic blunders. The most famous is never get involved in a land war in asia, but only slightly less well known is this! Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line!

I think it may be affected by how your walls are joined, wal ljustication location (center/inside/outside) and/or maybe when you set their phases. I experimented and ran 2 walls then put a 'T' in one of them. I then changed the cross arm wall to existing and put the secont leg in the other wall. Everything appeared normal. I changed one of the existing walls to ouside justified and crossed it with a new wall. When I used a 'T' cleanup, the insie wall line gapped when I only showed existing. Obviously a bug. I guess your only solution would be to pull the walls apart and play with them with two views open. Edit added - I used unjoin geometry and my gap disappeared. Please let us know if that corrects your problem. Post edited on 2006-10-04 15:10:02

Try setting your phase filter to Show Complete instead of Show all and this will show only what is in the phase you hace it set to.   Or if you are trying to show existing and new contruction use the Show Previous + New filter.

Thanks for the tip WWHub.  Your solution did work for one similar issue I had.  I have also learned that paying close attention to Phase and Phase Filter has a big impact on working with walls.  Perhaps most important is paying close attention to how one splits existing walls to demolish parts of those walls to add new construction.  I've found that if you split and demolish existing walls according to how they'll be done in "real life," the better the outcome.

I've run into this issue many times, it stems from an existing condition of wall, being joined with a new wall.  The solution is simple, tell the new wall to dissallow join then trim it to the existing wall.  Naturboyms has the right idea, if you model it closer to how you will build it, then you should be good to go.  Now if any of you love the pain, add design options to this mix!  Then you have a painful party, toggling between the different objects and getting them to display "correctly" in all views...
