Increase the width of your wall? height.tan(alpha) < width

Since you are using a Composite, you will need to modify the some of the layer thicknesses within the one you are using, or make a unique Composite for this wall.

That equation is just means that your top thickness is not less then zero.
height.tan(alpha) < width

height = height of wall
alpha = slope of face
width = width of wall base
If you want a specific top width, just input your desired height and wall slope, then add your top width to the answer.

Does that tutorial actually ask you to use a Composite rather than a Basic wall? Bit odd that it would tell you to use a specific composite with sloped faces / height that does not work...

I tried either changing to "Basic wall" or "Composite wall", the effects are the same: some times work and some times not work
As the attached picture, I follow the same way of the tutorial, one end of wall works, and the other not.
Such not being stable could because of version bug ...


Thanks Lingwisyer

Now I found a process to be stable-- click OK after each step:
(1) ”wall selection setting“,change to basic wall, then click OK
(2) ”wall selection setting“, change height, then click OK
(3) "wall selection setting“,change back to composite wall, then click OK

Odd... Does it also work if you set the wall sides to straight, change the height, then apply the slopes?

yes that's perfect (maybe the turorial is based on other AC version but I am using AC 23 so not all matches)
Many Thanks Lingwisyer
