Hello, long time since I've posted here and there's a lot of cobwebs around....I cannot remember how to create 3 line walls with the 'interior' line 4" and 8" from the two 'outside' lines. It keeps defaulting to be centered between the two outside line.

I'm no expert on this, so only answering because nobody else has ....

If you are using 2d walls then I think the interior line will always be placed at the wall center. If you need it elsewhere then a workaround would be to use a 4 line wall with zero cavity width.

With smart walls (Auto 3D Option) then I think you need to create a wall type in the Wall Type Manager, and that allows you to specify the 'Offset from Previous Line' for the 2nd and 3rd lines.

Hope this is helpful.
