Hello - I am new to Chief Architect and desperately need help figuring out this deck I'm trying to create. When I go to add railings to it, they are floating - which they weren't before. And the structure below is no longer showing up - I would like to have the deck reach the top of the terrain for a clean look. The hot tub is supposed to be sitting on top of the terrain as well, and the deck should be built around it, but I'm not sure how it got raised. The paneling also doesn't look as good as I'd like, but that is not main priority.
I also cannot figure out bay windows...one of the windows has disappeared, and I have the width I need and location of the window where I need it, but the deck is being built around it when I would like it to just continue underneath of it. If there's a way to connect the windows and not have brick in between - that would be great as well - if not, I am open to any help. I have attached the file here. Please help! Thank you!

I'm still fairly new to Chief and have mostly learned from just playing around with things. Is there a way to create a custom-shaped section for a different material? For example, I am trying to make a curved pathway of wood, while the surrounding material is carpet.
I was able to create the pathway using polylines, and then changed the fill to a wood-plank pattern on the plan view. But I am trying to see the differentiated pathway in the rendered perspective view.
Should I be using the polyline tools to do this or is there a better way?
Can Chief build a stair rail volute automatically?
Stair Questions - modifying lower and upper separately, open landings, and keeping treads away from a wallBy DRyeHD
I can't find answers to three challenges I'm having with this stairway. On the lower section, I need an open stairway with one stringer - treads stopping 2" away from outside wall. The landings need to be open (like the lower section). Then I need the top section to be closed.
Is there a way to modify the lower and upper sections seperately? How do I get the landings to be open underneath?
As always, your input is appreciated!
Can anyone help. finish floor is 36 in above grade . Stairs are staying at grade level! Chief support has not gotten back with me in over 2 days.
Second issue- window shutters will not change colors to look like door?
