I've not had much trouble with ceilings above stairs in the past but this one is giving me fits. I hope someone can explain what I'm doing wrong. I've got a sloped ceiling plane above the living and dining area. There's a balcony (landing) that hangs over part of the living roo0m and a closet under part of the balcony. So, as the camera shows, I can't get the sloped ceiling plane to cover the stairs. There's a room divider between living and dining that I think is causing some of the problem. I'm attaching the .pln file if someone wants to take a look at it.
On a side note, how can I make the bottom stair portion open underneath and the top stair portion closed risers?
Anyone have any good tips / solutions for showing a dropped ceiling plan? I have a 12ft framed structure. Structure built to accommodate desired roof plan, want to drop ceilings in west wing of the house to 10ft. Did this in the structure tab using an insulation airgap and then built a framing layer. Auto-Built the framing, made my ceiling height at 12ft. I obviously don't need 2 sets of framing either as shown in the structure tab. Thanks! I did actually get this to work in the foyer in this plan. Not working on the rest of the house...

This is just a remodeling above garage. But client is concerned about right side of the house elevation. Wants it to scale. The 2nd floor area see attached .
I have been trying for 2 days to get the 2nd floor plate line to work and windows on that side of the house to match the 88kb pic with windows at 7' header and eave drops down below window header.
I would appreciate any help in getting this project to look like the pic. I need to draw the roof (2nd floor on that side of the house0 with the 8 ft. ceiling 12 " in sloped and the plate at that part of the house at 7'4" with roof dropping down by window. I am not getting paid for this issue, just the remodeling part (But I need the right side to look and be to scale for the client, even though it is not part of the remodeling). This is in Chief 14 ver.
I need the semiarch dormers to match.

I started using the ceiling soffit tool for the first time and have a few questions.
Is it only limited to simple box and corner shapes? (I was a little surprised you cannot use the break tool and also boolean Add / subtract tools to create more complex soffits).
How do people create more complex ceiling soffits?
I am creating a design for my home renovation and have a spot where I want to run a rafter over a load-bearing wall or beam. I figured the rafters would be split into two groups at this bearing point.
Is there a way to do this in Chief? I'm at the top version now: Architect Premier X14.
I've tried beams and fake walls but I can't seem to find anything to trigger a break point. It looks like for floor joists there are some options to this effect but I can't find anything for roofs/rafters.
I've attached my test project for this concept.
