Modeling and drafting in Archicad. (Example: How can I model a Roof soffit/fascia?)

I routinely model complex profile walls with the footing and foundation wall in the same complex profile. It works great. Heck, I even add the 2x plate at the top of the foundation. The footing comes out as a dashed line because it is below the cut plane.

I set the vertical stretch lines above the footing and below the plate, so when I stretch the wall, it does not affect the footing or plate.

How did you get the footing section to display as dashed lines in plan view?
I have done it by making two elements and setting the footing to overhead projection but if it can be accomplished in one profile, one step, that would be much better.
Here are my settings. Uncut lines are set to dashed (these are the footing lines).

Make sure your floor plan cut plane is set to cut through the wall itself.
