Altium V18 - Placing 3D model, the leads appear to be buried in pad

Using Altium V18, making the diode footprint In Lesson 3 (approx 1:05:00), when you align the face of the bottom of the diode lead with the board placing 3D model, it appears to be â€œburiedâ€ inside the pad when placed. I can move it up more so it is visible, but I donâ€™t understand why I should need to. Is this attempting to compensate for pad thickness? If I move it up, will it be â€œshortâ€ for the pick-n-place machine?
Another V18 issue - Also, Iâ€™ve noticed the â€œpackagingâ€ information doesnâ€™t import correctly when searching for components from Digi-Key. It appears to just say "Tape & Reel" for all the rows â€“ rather useless.
