interferance of walls

I want to have different versions of my building on different layers. However walls on one layer interact with walls on another even when it is turned off (not visible). Can you isolate walls that are crossing each other or intersecting, so that they do not link up?

I believe this can only be done if the Walls are on a different plane, high enough above/below where they won't intersect/overlap each other. Basically, you would actually be creating a second, third, fourth story, but it would look the same in Plan View. I hope that isn't too confusing.

Afraid I couldn't figure out how to do that in v16 (or v14, either). But in v11,  the strategy of placing them on different Layers and then switching the Layers' visibility works just fine.

John is correct.  We place multiple stories on different workplanes and walls don't seem to interact with hidden layers.  Have been doing it that way since v8, but Henry is correct also, the walls since v14 do act some different.  When creating the workplanes separate them by a large enough Z value so the entities won't touch the hidden ones.
