I am placing wall footings - basic 2' wide x 1'6" deep centered on each perimeter wall.  The walls are wood framed basic walls with a 6" concrete curb.  The bottom of the wall is placed at ground floor level.  The exterior finish is unlocked and pulled up 4" from bottom of the wall.  When I place the footing, it wants to go to the underside of the finish I have raised up.  It wants to move with that finish.  I actualy want the footing to be 1'-0" below the floor finish and then join the slab edge to the footing.  Why is this such a problem?  I cannot find anyway of manually controlling the vertical placement.  The only option I can see is to create slab footings and manually place them vertically and then lock them to the walls so they are coordinated.  Any ideas?  Please see attached revit image and structural detail showing how it should be modeled.  Thanks.  RAC2009Edited on: Tue, Jun 2, 2009 at 5:58:16 PMEdited on: Tue, Jun 2, 2009 at 5:58:50 PMEdited on: Tue, Jun 2, 2009 at 5:59:18 PM

Well...thats a hard one becuase it depends on a lot of factors.

How was the family created for the footing?

Was anything locked when you placed the footing? (like locking the top of the footing to the bottom of the brick so if one moved they both move?)

If you can, delete all the stuff in a copy fo the project and upload it here or email it to me.
