Is there any way to use a previously created surface as the original layer surface for takeoff purposes?

When performing a takeoff, the original and finished surfaces are created using the layers assigned to those categories. Is there any way to simply use a previously created surface, an imported .xml for example, as the surface. I've tried tried to change the imported surface category to original but it still wants to use the Original ground layer surface.

 

I can export the .xml surface as a .dxf and reimport the linework to assign to the categories, but it would be nice to be able to skip those steps.
