I've been getting the message "Wall is slightly off axis and may cause inaccuracies," and "A line in sketch is slightly off axis and may cause inaccuracies."  Why is this happening?  It happens a lot when I move groups and when I create walls over the top of other walls by selecting wall lines below (with the arrow tool rather than drawing them with the pencil.)  How can I fix these walls or sketches?  Really how do I know which line or wall is the offending line or wall?  I can't see anything wrong with any of my lines or sketched objects.  It's kind of driving me nuts.  Thanks

It means that your walls are slightly rotated.  This happens to me sometimes if I try to sketch a building on top of an AutoCAD file that wasnt drawn correctly or that wasn't rotated properly aligned on the screen.  The only way to fix this is to go around and make sure that all of your walls are aligned with an object or plane or line that is completely parrallel to the x or y axis.
