Not that come I remember at this point.
If I remember correctly the problem stretching walls is when they are connected to another one (like in a corner) then you need to select both, zoom out and then you hopefully can stretch them.

This is a huge bug then - we stretch walls all the time in section and it barely works now.

In the project I have open now, I have one wall that I can't stretch at all, one that I can stretch but only from the bottom of the wall and another I can only stretch from the top!

Is that consistent with this bug or is there something else possibly going on?

I have found that also. However you can ~sometimes~ stretch the wall when it is grouped with another and the grouping setting is on.

Very unproductive.

Speaking on grouping, I'm finding I can't group and ungroup in the section window either....

Another observation: I was just working in section, trying to deal with wall heights. I selected a wall, clicked a hotspot and the correct pet palette with height adjustment appeared so I was able to adjust height as is normal.

Then I noticed that the base of the wall was set to -3/4". I changed it to the correct 0" and went back to re-adjust the height but no height icon on the pet palette again! Changed the base back to -3/4 and height adjustment worked fine again!

No idea what's going on, but GS really needs to get this worked out and soon.

EDIT TO ADD: I have other walls with bases not set at 0 and they are not allowing height adjustment so it's not as simple as just a problem with walls with base @ 0"
