Wall segment dissapeared

The attached complex wall profile if used as a wall doesn't appear in full width. If I delete part of the wall that looks in top view as intended, the missing part appears. When used as a beam it looks as it should. The top view is set to show all lines, the two parts are mirrored from each other and are totally the same.

 

Operating system used: Windows

what is the projection setting of the wall? complex profiles on walls don't always give a full range of options you'd like to see. Sometimes you have to fuss with the projection settings and the floor plan cut plane.
without seeing what the actual geometry is and the actual wall/profile settings, it's hard to say what is going on with the plan view. But I'd start by setting the wall to "projected with overhead", then play with the floor plan cut plane to get it to show cut where you want it.

Tanks, but we tried that. The main problem is that the wall profile is a mirorred thing with two identical part, and just one part looks as it should. If i delete a portion of the other half, it appears again.

You could also check for Walls on hidden Layers. They may intersect your visible Wall resulting in the above behavior.

Make all layers visible, and see if there are any "naughty" Walls.
