Sheathing on Rim Joist

How do you add O.S.B. sheathing to the rim joists to show correctly on the 3D model and in cross sections.

Cube

The only way I can think of to do that is to use cubes. I looked at wall definitions but couldn't make that work. Looked at Banding but couldn't make that work. Of course the easiest way to do it for cross sections is to just draw in a box or a line after saving the cross sections. But if you need it for 3D as well then cubes are about the only thing I can think of.

I must be missing something.  If you have the 'cover floor' button checked under 'Adjust Wall Surface To...' it works perfectly for me.

I found out i had the wall

I found out i had the wall sheathing above the floor system check as bearing. That makes the wall sheathing stop at the bottom of the wall.

Wall Def

Well after reading these last 2 posts I went back and took another look. As it turns out the reason my sheathing wasn't covering the floor system is because I didn't have the sheathing going all the way to the bottom of the wall. It was held up .625" from the bottom. If I changed the wall definition to make the sheathing go to the bottom of the wall then it covered the rim joists.
