Floor systems

Still learning the basics on SP2012 purchased two months ago and seem to be having some difficulty with the floor system. I'm designing a two story four unit condo building. I created a new wall type for the firewall in between units. It shows on my plans, sections and 3D views except the floor system tab. I need to frame the floor to for each unit to the firewall. i have checked the firewall definitions and it all appears to be correct. I saved the new wall type to the current drawing, does SP needs it saved to the system options to recognize the wall?

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hector, can you upload the actual floor plan with the firewalls so I can take a look at it? I can see from the PDF that the firewalls are not showing up in Floor System mode but I need the actual drawing in order to determine why.

Floor System Walls Not Showing

Just a thought, but open the edit wall dialogue and click on the definition box. Check to see that the wall is checked as being "bearing". If not, it will not show up in floor or roof modes.
