I am trying to create different wall types that have different materials and colors on the finishes. I duplicate and create a new wall type but when I change the finish it chages the finish on all of the walls in the project. HHHEEELLLPPPP! I don't know what is going on.

Easiest way I know is the split face command and use the paint bucket.

When you duplicate the wall types are you giving them new materials as well (ie duplicating the materials and creating new ones) or are you editing the actual materials, which would effect all walls using that particular material?

I am just adding a finish to the wall type and giving the finish a color. If I use the same finish in the different wall types then the colors will be the same? How can I use the same finish and have a different color applied?

Well, I'm sure Mr. Spot will have the BEST answer because he is the Revit Master, but at least for a quick fix to your problem, use split face and the paint bucket. Say you have a wall that comes perpendicular to another wall. The main wall continues as one wall, but it splits into two where your other wall is. Use split face right there where the two walls intersect. Now you will be able to paint one side one color and the other side another. I believe you can even change the texture.

You either create a new wall type for each of your different finishes (& colours) or use the Paint tool as suggested by everyone else. You shouldn't need to use split face unless one wall has multiple colours. HTH.
