This is a scenario that pops up for us constantly and is a problem Graphisoft should really explain why they don't address this issue.
Model a short or multi-story wall on a "lower story" tall enough to show up in the cut plane height illustrating all the materials in the wall. Move a story up and assume you need to see that wall in plan, that was placed on the "lower story". Guess what, often there is NO clean solution to have this happen.
The big question is, why can't we show a wall in plan on any story, irrespective of what story it was placed on, like with roofs and slabs?!?!? Why does this inconsistent behavior of the most used construction tool/element (walls) exist? It makes no sense at all.
100% and should be a priority. The options should be Home/Relevant/Custom for all the 3D tools. Apart from delivering users with a consistent interface, I would have thought it would help GS consolidate their coding to be running the same setting options. Win, Win.

In the case I'm referring, we have a foundation plan with full height walls and low height walls. We want the plan to indicate the materials consistently at the cut plane. That we can get working just fine at the foundation plan.
Now go up a story, and the low walls that show as cut on our foundation plan, will not project up to the 1st floor.
I have attached a screen shots of a portion of the foundation plan, walls show correctly. Then a screen shot from the floor above and the short wall (height) of the foundation plan can be seen ONLY if trace reference view is toggled on.
Thirds screen shot shows the trace reference off, and the low wall below no longer can be seen.
You may be getting the results you want, but you may not have a similar graphics/design issue that we have on our project.
Bottom line, it makes no sensenthat slabs and roofs have many more options than walls for projections on construction documents. We need to be spend less time on "work-arounds" to produce Construction Documents that we can easily and quickly produce the old school way, ie., pencil and paper.
