Re: Plywood shear wall definition

Bill you are correct.  I usually think of it as top of top plate to diaphragm below.
 
As a side note what I typed would be correct if the wall extends above the roof (full height studs) and the roof diaphragm is ledgered to the wall.  I was working on this as I was typing away...
