I'm Running Chief X8, MS Windows 10 on SurfacePro3.
Building three stories over a basement. Trying to create the Elevator Shaft. Elevator Shaft... 4 framed walls each floor to create a shaft for the elevator. Walls are Aligned with walls below. I have stair ways where Open Below rooms eliminate the Floor and Framing like they should. I have an atrium on floor 2 overlooking to floor 1, created with a railing and room Open Below... this works too (no floor).
But on each floor where I box in the Elevator Shaft with 4 walls, create the room, designate it as "Open Below" there is still framing and decking inside the Elevator Shaft. I have "Rebuilt floors and Ceilings" and "Rebuilt Framing" does nothing.
I have turned on and off Auto Framing. Deleted and Recreated walls Created the Shaft bottom floor first... and top floor first.
One thing I have noticed is that this plan has created a Center Line running front to back in the plan and the front wall of the elevator shaft is sometimes split when I draw it.
Any Ideas on how to get rid of the floor inside the Elevator Shaft?

I am working on a 4 story home that has a curved central staircase. After a few hours of work in another area, I noticed one of the 'open below' rooms for the staircase is no longer drawing open. It draws with the same flooring as the floor that surrounds it. It still highlights as a separate room, so there isn't a break in the open below room perimeter railings. I've checked the floor/ceiling/floor above/ceiling below/etc. heights and they match the surrounding room. I've checked the roof over/ceiling over/floor under check boxes and they match the other open below rooms that are drawing correctly. I've turned the room type to a hallway, and then back to open below to see if I could reset it or something. Nothing has worked.
I'm sure this is something really stupid. Come on, guys, what am I missing? Thank you.
