[Unsolved]Change the Doodad Footprint Type

I need a doodad's 5x5 footprint to block vision.

I understand that there are other ways to do this, like use LOS blocking doodads underneath the doodad. I don't really feel this is very efficient with the amount of LOS blocking doodads I would need.

Here is where I am so far, I am in the data editor, I have the doodad selected I need, the object explorer view is open and I have selected the doodad's footprint. I understand that I may need to dupicate the footprint so that other doodads that rely on this one are not effected. So, let's assume I have done that, from here:

1-How do I change which footprint is assigned to the doodad? And,
2-How do I alter the footprint to block LOS?

Please be very specific if you can answer this. I have found a few other posts with a similar question and the answers have often been so general(like, "Just make the footprint block LOS...").

I really appreciate any help I can get!!

Thanks,
Kanoobee
