I'm fairly new to Home Designer and something I cannot get the grasp of is the terrain tools. Im drawing a house with walk out basement and need the terrain to slope. I've watched videos on how to get it to slope correctly and have followed step by step and the terrain still acts funny. I'll set my front lower so the garage area is at the right elevation and this usually makes for a couple steps into the house or porch. I then set lines in the back of the house to the elevation around 4" under the walk out door, to make room for the patio slab. However, when I set this elevation for the rear, the terrain in the front moves up and although its settings are still at the correct number, it shows the terrain level with the front door and is too high for the garage. So I lower the front elevation lines and as soon as I do the rear terrain goes up over the bottom of the walk out door. The data for the elevation lines dont change numbers but the elevations of the terrain moves. Almost like a glitch. This shouldn't be this difficult. Any ideas?
the photo i've attached shows the elevation in the back of the house at the correct spot and although I had the front set to the correct elev. the program brought the front up past the stoop.
