Wall foundations

For those of you who doesn't know yet, I have been asked last week why some of my wall foundations width have a different behaviors when I change the wall thickness.

As you can see on the first screenshot you have a structural usage parameter under the type proprieties dialog box of a wall foundation. when it is set to Bearing you have acces to a width parameter wich is the overall footing width.

On the second picture you have the parameter set to Retaining and you can see that the width is now set according to the outside face of the wall and controlled by 2 paramters Toe and Heel wich is not very usefull if you need to schedule your footing's width.
