Glass wall

This is kind of a different situation because you have two different types of walls coming together at a corner. But you don't want the corners to miter. Rather you want the glass to butt into the side walls.

So Edit the glass wall. Click the Wall Joins button and set the Join Tolerance for the Top and Bottom to be 0". Top and Bottom does not mean the top or bottom of the wall. It refers to the top and bottom of the screen. If the wall had been horizontal, or anything other than vertical, the settings would say Left and Right.

After setting the Wall Joins to 0" then adjust the ends of the glass wall to butt into the side walls and adjust the side walls to the outside of the glass wall. Because the Join Tolerance of the glass wall is set to 0" the glass wall won't form a miter corner with the side walls.

Wall joins

Bill. Below the glass wall is a DW2x4DW 4 1/2" ht. Does that make a difference? if you look at the attachment i already did set shower wall join to zero

Yes

I didn't realize you had the glass wall stacked on top of a short wall. You would need to set the wall joins for the short wall to 0" as well. Instead of using a short wall under the glass wall I would probably use a Cube. Or if this were a wall I used often and I wanted a curb on the bottom and glass on top I would create a wall that has that already built in. Stacking walls on top of each other more often than not causes all sorts of problems, particularly in the corners.

I had answered your question then you edited it which then required me to edit mine. Then you responded to the old answer. You might want to read what I said again.
