It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.

First, draw the wall, then click on it to open it's specification box.

 

In Suite, if you don't choose a template, it will use the default template. The exterior walls will be siding-6,

Maybe we have a different meaning of wall types as I count 23 in Suite.

Like solver said, you can't redefine Wall Types in Suite.

You can, however, choose an approximate wall type, like LawB10 suggested.

I guess the real question is WHY do you want to redefine the wall types?

In your version, you can change the exterior and interior materials of walls, as well as adjust their thickness, which probably covers most situations.

If you need to edit how framing is going to be used or set up an actual custom wall type for Materials List purposes, then you'll need to upgrade.
