How do you separate The Different walls from each other?
I get the same color on each wall.      TC19-PRO

Do you talk about interior or exterior walls, in both cases the color is up to you.
After making the wall's you can change the color for each wall, it's not possible to get different color when you make them.
You can change the style, brush/ color or material for each wall after they are been maked.

Are you assigning different Wall Styles to the walls prior to drawing them.

>:(I have one wall type installed in Style Manager. It is set to red walls and slanted hatch pattern.
Every new wall I try to install comes up red with slanted hatch pattern. I have tried every way to get rid of this
wall but get a popup telling me this wall is being used and cannot be deleted.

Any help in getting rid of this wall will be appreciated

Do you have a preset using this wall style?

re: …Any help in getting rid of this wall will be appreciated.

Did you make a new Style or did you edit the Standard Wall Style?

Assuming you have a new named style:
First, go to the Properties dialog for the Wall tool. On the "General" page, set "Wall Styles" to "Standard".
Second, delete any "Presets" that may contain the errant Wall Style
Third, find all the inserted walls that contain the new wall style and change those to "Standard".
Save, close & reopen the drawing. This clears the "Undo" buffer.
You should now be able to delete the style from the Style Manager.

Post the file someone will be able to help you.
 Usually you cant delete a style if it is used by a preset. or an existing wall in the drawing.
Most things you draw in TC will use the same style as the previous item of that type that you drew. To change this you need to right click your mouse , click on properties and at the bottom of the dialogue box there is drop down box where you can choose which style you want to use.
