Can you edit floor sub-components in section?

I have a floor joist/subfloor/finish floor system where the joists are hung from the sill inside the foundation wall, this means that the joists stop at the wall but the subfloor will continue over the sill plate and the finish floor will stop at the inside edge of the bottom wall plate.  As near as I can figure, in order to get this to show correctly in section I really need to create the complete floor assembly by stacking 3 separate floor sub-assemblies (framing, sub-floor, finish floor) is this correct? (this is the method I'm currently using) Is there a way to manipulate the sub-components in section that I haven't found?

Hello Marcus - what you currently have is correct.

If you need to manipulate the materials separately you would need to place them separately and layer them on top of each other.

You can't think AutoCAD and run Revit.

Thanks for your feedback, that's kind of what I figured. 


I haven't had to try it, but I'm going to assume that roofs behave the same way. 


Maybe this could be a wish list item...if there was a Revit Architecture wish list.  I guess that getting an RA wish list would be a wish list item as well?? lol
