This should all be in the default template.

You mean fill in the cavity?

 

Graphic Overrides will help.

You should have a rule that turns all cut fills solid & black.

I mean the double bricks should have shown in solid black. 

Barry, the graphic overrides not working  for this case. could you please provide more assistance?

Thanks Barry, how to show the cavity as a white colour?

Ignore above. Problem resolved. Please answer my question about window patterns in another post. Thank you so much

For that, I would just use an alternative pen set rather than Graphic Overrides.

Just have a pen set that turns the wall fill pen colours to black.

 

Of course this will affect anything else that uses those pen colours - so may not be the solution you are looking for.

But if the entire plan is to be black and white, that should not be a problem.

BarrySorry for bothering you again. I set my floor plan to all black solid fills, but when I switch to another view and come back to the floor plan, it resets to the previous setting.
