I have updated my defaults to allow for a 14" floor truss between the two floors. All the dimensions show in the default setting DBX accurately but when they are commanded to reset to defaults the first floor adds 2" to the ceiling height but does not create the 14" space for the floor trusses. Let me know if someone sees something I missed.

I'm designing a 3 level home.. the main level stairs I want to use are L shaped from 1st to second. .I have attached PDF cross section of how I want the stairs to function.. and PDF of first floor showing no stairwell to basement.. I want to place a straight railing on first floor across stairwell as well as stair railing descending ( which is in place).
I also need to be able to come in from the mud room from the garage on the fist floor.. so thinking I need steeper stairs to basement but not sure how to change the heights etc.
Any suggestions are welcome. I have watched the videos and I know you have to start from the bottom and work your way up but not sure how to get the look I want.

I have asked this question on Facebook’s Chief Architect page and no one can figure out or help with what I am seeing. I can’t adjust the knee wall height unless I click and drag each piece of lumber individually. I did this once and then rebuilt framing for another wall and it rebuilt this to what you see in the image. I also had all the ceilings correct and then found them separated from the floor trusses today and the floor/ceiling heights are off. I tried the Edit>Reset to Defaults and that didn’t adjust them. I am not sure what is going on but I am definitely not intentionally doing this. I found it like the images below as I am placing everything into the layout pages and several areas are messed up. Any ideas?
I've been learning CA for about a month and have some challenges on a plan that I cannot figure out. I have attached a perspective with color markups and the plan. I would appreciate some input on how to fix these items.
1. Red: The 2nd floor system is 14" trusses. I cannot figure out how to fill the two indicated areas.
2. Blue: I cannot figure out how to get rid of the stair rail against the wall without losing some of the wall behind.
3. Green: I cannot figure out how to put a cap on this half wall; also there is no ceiling drywall directly above it.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Just converting to Chief Arch from Auto Cad and struggling with wall heights. Footings 24" x 8" basement walls are ICF 13" wide 9' tall with 24" open bar joist which make the ceiling height 11' to with a 4" concrete cap. Upper level walls are ICF 9" wide with a ceiling height of 10' with vaulted ceiling on family room/kitchen that carries out over the covered deck.
