After following these instructions on using Windows to create a screened porch (https://www.homedesignersoftware.com/support/article/KB-00748/creating-a-screen-porch.html) something happens when I use exterior walls instead of railings to create the screened porch over a walk out basement where the ground just disappears.Screenshots below show the elevation when the walls are exterior walls with "screen windows"  and when at least one wall is a railing.

 

With a wall as a "railing":

With screens:

And as far as I am aware, I cannot create screened porches using a railings wall type so I am not quite sure how to fix this.

Open the Terrain.

 

Uncheck Hide Terrain Intersected by Building

 

Look in the Edit Toolbar for the Make Terrain Hole tool. It creates a polyline you may reshape as required.
