Hello, I am trying to add a stair to the basement, opening a floor for the stair to pass thru. When I use the auto stairwell option it does not open the adjacent floor, it partially open floor on one side of the wall. I had to add a rails on the upper floor to open the floor for the stair well. Plan attached for reference. Now how do I cut the joist  to make room for the stair to pass thru, which shows in my 3D view? how do i achieve that?

      Whether I'm using "open space below" to create a stairwell into an attic or Auto stairwell I can't seem to simply get an opening in the floor. The problem is whenever I create the stairwell it sends up walls and destroys the roof line in the attic.  How do I create a stairwell without creating a window into the sky?
