My exterior walls are -2'-0" and the interior walls are -1'-4". I would like for the footings to trim, so it looks clean. Is there an easier way to do this besides going in and editing the wall profile where the two meet?

I have attached a screenshot of what it looks like now.

I think to do it like you build it, you need a bit of your 8" to step up(DN) before it meets the compound wall.  Sketch the elevation of the wall and the footings will then show correctly.

WWHub,

I was trying to get around doing that, as that can get tedious. Thanks though!

The other otion is to split that wall vertically and assign a different bottom value to the stepped area.  << Simple

I have never split a wall vertically? Is that the same as editing the profile?

The wall really stops where the two join, but the footing continues for some reason. I was just hoping you could join the two, which would be simple...

Split vertically...in plan, use the split tool and pick your point along the wall.

 

Check out your footing properties.  There is a default end extension that can be set in type properties.  Even with that on, you can drag the end back to the wall end.  Just click on the footing then the blue button.  You can also drag out....
