What you are looking for is a Mono Slab that will be defined by the room.

and / or "Foundation Defaults" where you can specify the chamfer measurements of the footing.

Two more questions. How do i change to two different size of thickened edge slabs, eg 18x24 for house and 12x24 for garage? Also I want my garage 7" lower how do I lower the stemwall in the garage?

What I'm trying to accomplish is make the house in red with a 18x24 thickened edge slab and garage with 12x24 thickened edge slab. Garage is 7" lower than house and does not require a thickened edge for garage along the house wall. Thanks for all the help.

I believe there is only one default for monoslab thickness and footing sizes so you will need to reset the default and only rebuild the area that is using the new default.  Not exactly sure what needs to be lowered 7" the garage floor or the perimeter stem wall ?

 

It may be helpful to post your flan file or a simplified version of it with the same specifications.  Also what version you are using.
