    Problem with type selector wall properties

    Quite new to revit and just got it on my home computer, when i go to change the wall properties, from a basic wall to a exterior - bick and mcu on mtl stud for example, when i click the drop down menu on the type selector, all of the option for different wall types are not available, and the only options i get is basic, curtain and stacked wall. how do i get the detailed wall properties available to select?
    Many thanks

    Which template are you using? I don't think the default template has much in it.

      no template is set up yet, just going through an instruction booklet for beginners, it says the template will be set up eventually. but the book gives u the instructions to pick a specific wall property, but on the drop down menu there are only the options iv mentioned. please help! really struggling

        When you start a new project you generally get a pop-up asking to select a template. If you select no template your type selector will look like the image I attached.

        If this is the case try opening a new file. Click on the big R, go to new, project and you should get a popup asking about what template you want to use. See the 2nd attachment. Pick the default.rte file and you should be good to go.
