As you can see two composite walls are not intersecting. Where do I set the priorities for the composite.

Also any idea why I can't set the colours for the walls- for instance I don't want a black core or purple wall for that matter.? I have tried some options in the Graphic over-rides

From left the walls are Existing, New and Demolished

One other thing - can you turn off composites in Sk View?

Since AC12, Graphisoft introduced a new kind of Attribute called Building Material, where you can set intersection priorities for each individual BM.
After defining the BM priority, also check if the Layer Intersection Group Number is the same for all involved elements.
Regarding Wall colors, you can set many other things, including cut fills in the Building Material Dialog Box. Also check if any Graphic Overrides may be interfering in your floor plan.
About turning of composites in sections: If I understand you correctly, you probably need to create a new GO Rule and set a style to cut fills and background fills.
Hope this helps.
