First off let me apologize is these questions sound idiotic but I am looking into moving over to revit from a much simpler CAD program.  I am having problems with a simple garage/ office structure.  It is a simple gable roof with siding on the upper gable ends and  stacked over a brick lower walls. My problem relates to a porch that takes up one of the corners of the building.  It is inset and I am having problems getting a sided wall on the gable end over the porch section.  I have tried a few things without success so far.  I also have a question about the proper way to handle the wiring lines for electrical switches.  I can easily draw lines with simple line tools but then these lines are visible on all the overhead views.  Thanks in advance for any help.

For the porch thing, just edit the profile of the wall (options bar).  I had the same problem and that is what I did.  Worked great.

 As being somewhat of a newbie, I'm interested in the answer to your electrical question, myself.  Hope someone has a good answer.

Should I use the base offset in the properties area for that wall?  I am about to be faced with a similar situation when I create a covered walkway between this building and an existing structure.  Thanks again.

for electrical plans you want to use drafting lines under the drafting tab. these lines are view specific and do not appear in the model...only the view they are drawing in.

Hope that helps.

to go back to your first question select the wall then at the top of the window next to the properties box you'll see it say edit profile click that then you'll be prompted to select a view then you can snap lines of the profile of the wall that you need to draw just remember the drawing lines have to be a closed loop.

With regard to the base offset.  I'd say yes, if the lowest part of your wall is above the nearest level.  I would think it more proper to set a base offset, then to cut it off using Edit Profile.
