We recently upgraded to AutoCAD Architecture 2013 from Architecture 2011 and am having all sorts of intermittent issues with walls showing up as single lines in x-refs (even though the file being refrenced has been brought into 2013 and shows correctly when opened by itself). We are also having intermittent issues with the plans and walls themselfs showing as a single line. I need assistance on strightening this out as we have several jobs pending construction that are all having this issue in incosestant areas.

Check out your Display Configuration in the problem drawing. From your image it looks to me like it is set to Diagnostic which shows walls as single line.
The Display Configuration Pick List is at the bottom right of the screen within the 'Drawing Status Bar' between the Annotation Scale pick list and Cut Plane. ~ Mary
Also check the proper display configuration from the drop down box on the bottom right of your screen.
if set to 'Low Detail', all your walls will only show the shrinkwrap of the walls (single lines)
The setting is currently set to "Work" in all the plans views and shows all aec walls and related data appropriately in all plans except the one i am posting about.
"Work" is not a standard OOTB Display Configuration (at least not in 2012), it may not be set to correctly show the walls. Is it a standard one for your company? If so is the person who set it up available to you? Have you changed it to one of the OOTB Display Configs to see if they work for you?
This is a somewhat difficult problem for the community to help you out with just through words... If you can, please post the drawing(s) so that we can look into the problem. BTW I don't have 2013 installed so someone else will have to help out.
Or are you pehaps referring to "Model" and "Work" space? (Tabs located on the left bottom corner)
Your display configuration drop down box is on the right.
When in model and workspace, check these display configuration settings.
The 'Low' display will show walls only in single line.
These settings appear to be correct... It does not show corretly in either model space or paper space... and the display configuration is not set to low detail or any other odd preset that would modify the display to my knowledge. See attached... This also appears to have happened intermittently on another job... The plans looked as seen in the attached, and then several days later looked okay again... So it appears to be a setting of some sort , but i can not pin point it.
