There is a button in Archicad to connect two walls, where can I find it?

There is a button in Archicad to connect two walls, where can I find it? Why does a wall come out with the finish with stones even if not chosen this finish with stones in the outer headboard?

Thank you

However I would recommend turning on the Edit Elements toolbar instead.

 

You probably have overridden the surface of the wall if it is not showing the surface of the building material.

 

Checl the Override Surfaces buttons in the Model tab of the Wall Default Settings.

Anyway I tried to delete the wall but there are not two overlapping walls.

Ctrl + I

 

The stone is your wall composites core building material. When your wall is intersection properly, it will not show.

If you select both walls with the mouse, ctrl+mouse, which is the button that gives the command: fillet or intersect? Can you send me a screen shot of this button? Thank you

Also in your 'On-screen Display Option' make sure that 'Clean Wall & Beam Intersections' is turned on.

This will automatically trim walls as you place them when the walls touch in plan.

Where do I find this command: Clean wall...?

It is an 'On-Screen Display Option' which you will find in the VIEW menu.

Exactly where I can't say as I don't have the default Work Environment loaded.

Mine has probably been customised.

It should already be turned on by default.

You really don't want to ever turn it off.
