I have two 4-way switches in a two gang box and I can't get them all to work simultaneously

I have two 4-way switches in a two gang box. One of the 4-way switch manages two 3-way switches. While the second 4-way switch works in unision controlling the front door lights (a 3 gang box with one 3-way switch, 1 single pole switch and a 3rd 3-way switch) (a two gang box with the 1st 3-way switch that works with the 1st 4-way switch and a second 3-way switch that works with my patio light), (the patio light which are on a 4 gang box) and finally a dining room dimmer, I can't get them all to work simultaneously

Zee,

Seems to me you have at least (2) 3-way circuits going on here. They need to stay separated since there is a 4-way switch involved in one of the 3-way circuits. In order for me to help I need a simple layout diagram that shows me where each switch is located and what they each control. This will give me a better understanding as to what circuits are there and how to get you back to working condition.

Thanks for visiting..
