Keep Out/In Heights

I am trying to export a PCB model from SW, through Circuitworks and into Cadence. I've modelled 2 keepout areas on the PCB, and renamed them as Place_Keepout_01 and Place_Keepout_02 as per the SW help files. The 2 keepouts have different heights, yet when they are brought into Cadence, they have a single uniform height of the largest keepout area. I've tried sending the file back from CW to SW without exporting it to Cadence, and in SW it also had a uniform keepout height. Is there any way to have different heights for the keepouts, or is this a limitation within the software?
