  1. I changed all the rooms' framing group numbers to be identical and confirmed that the same floor structure is in place. The floor joists regenerate now as a single span without any breaks. Thank You for helping me out here!
  2. I would like to auto generate clear spanning floor joists as much as possible to limit or avoid manual editing. Unfortunately, for my situation the walls above the floor platform prevent this. In the "Wall Specifciation" dialogue boxes I have turned off the "Structure, Framing Insert Floor Framing Below" function. The software application does not take into account these settings and just continues to add additional framing under the walls. I have also run joist direction lines at several locations but that has no effect. I have also deleted all framing objects except for bearing lines and joist direction lines using the dialogue box Edit> Delete Objects> Framing. None of those actions override the auto framing under the walls. I did delete the walls and added them back in step wise. But, that exercise did not have the desire effect. Can someone provide a suggest as to how to turn off the auto floor framing under the walls?
  3. The basement walls created the issue. One wall had the "Bearing Wall" Structure attribute set and the other did not. Problem corrected by unchecking the "Bearing Wall" structure attribute and then I used the "Joist Direction" tool.
  4. I changed that one wall setting to no definition but then I cannot regenerate the framing. The room selection gets turned off. I changed the wall back to have a room definition and then changed the wall type to partition. I ran the build framing macro without any success at eliminating the gap.
  5. Okay, I will try that. Appreciate your feedback.
  6. I am looking for assistance to solve a build framing problem on my first floor. A section of floor joists in the same room will not butt against a rim joist. I have tried setting different attributes in the dialogue boxes but cannot extend the floor joists to the rim joist under a particular wall. The other walls in the same room setup the framing correctly when the build framing macro runs. Can someone take a look at my wall facing the north, in the north facing porch, and then give me suggestions as to what is wrong with my wall settings? I have thinned out the rail wall so that the sill plate below goes to the outside edge of the foundation. Otherwise, the sill pate centres on the foundation wall is not correct. Would appreciate receiving some guidance here.
