Default Open Rocket - Need Help with V-2 fins (tailcone issue)

I loaded a V-2 model I found in the Open Rocket desifn database, but it had no fins. I have created a fin profile using the freeform fin editor, but cannot get fins to drop from body tube diameter down to the tailcone. In the freeform editor, the graph of the fin shows a negative region on the graph, but points cannot be moved below the X-axis, or inward from the body tube to the tailcone.

I saw this issue raised by someone several years ago -- is it still an issue? Any workaround or suggestions appreciated. I'm pretty new to OR and have not had any issues building "conventional models", but this one has me stumped.
