Is there a setting to control Flr Joists @ Openings (like @ stair openings)

Is there a way to control the number of trimmers created at stair openings.  

 

In the pic below...the software has placed a double trimmer at the stair opening on both sides...but, on one side there is actually a load bearing wall and only a single trimmer is required so that the joists can bear on the wall. 

 

Is there someplace in the software that controls this?  Thanks.

I set the o.c. spacing to 96" (can't set it any higher), autobuild joists / sills then delete all joists (hence the few as possible in autobuild) except stair openings and rimboard.  Then I set all joist in correct location and quantity.  In your case I would just select joist and replicate / move 1.5".....done!

Ok...so the answer is no.  Manual edit is required.  

 

Auto building floors then almost always will require “time” to make fixes.  

 

Thanks all for your comments and expertise.

      I've tried all dbx setting combinations I can think of, looked through the discussion topics, and on the FB user group - can't find a solution to get my balusters to go down to the stair treads.  I see a few pictures of this type of application but can't figure out how to do it.  I turned the auto-rail off and am using the railing tool.  Any help with this is appreciated.

      I have a building which has a staircase outside of the structure that I'd like to display on the second floor plan. Is there a way to do this without creating walls under the stairs or encasing the area with invisible walls? Thanks!

      I have needed tom place stairs that go through a doorway on multiple occasions, and every time I try it would seem the program glitches and usually breaks the wall or the doorway so you can see the structural materials. The best solution I have found was placing two staircases on either side of the opening, but even that solution isn't perfect. Has anyone found a solution to this?? Am I doing something wrong? I feel like it's pretty common for stairs to go through openings, so it would seem odd to me if chief would not have an option for that.... I attached a picture of what I am encountering. I am using premier x13 beta, but this was also a problem in x12

      Hello,
       
      I'm new to chief architect and I'm having trouble with this tricky sloped wall. For some reason this weird cut out that reflects the shape of the stair railings is showing up on the ceiling. If anyone has recommendations on how to fix this please share! Thanks

      Hey All,
       
      My company is in the process of making the switch from Autodesk Revit to Chief Arch (Version X12) and I have been spending my time trying to create a lot of commonly used design elements we use on our plans but I have run into a hiccup. I'm trying to create a small, inset-type staircase (attached image is what I've done in Revit in the past) that is typically used on our plans to go from grade-level sidewalk to the main floor elevation. In my attempts, stairs either fail to recognize the elements around them or if I create them like I would in Revit in creates this garbled configuration where the stairs are their own room and the footprint of the stairs themselves cut a hole through the roof.
       
      Checking Forums, YouTube, and the Chief site have all yielded nothing and I in my limited knowledge cannot figure it out. What am I missing?
