Changing ceiling height changes moves the floor up, not the ceiling down

Would like to keep the foundation locked - is this a setting somewhere that i'm missing?

 

I am changing the ceiling height in one room on the 1st floor but it is raising my foundation footer instead. See screeshot

Troubleshooting is easier with the plan file. Close Chief and attach and someone will have a look.

Double click the problem room, and reset the floor elevation to the default. Then, select 'Shelf Ceiling" and then enter your desired ceiling height.

You don't have a foundation. Consider building one instead of marking your first floor walls as Foundation and Slab Footing.

 

What do you want to happen on the 2nd floor when you drop the 1st floor ceiling? What type of ceiling structure does the room have?

The second floor is directly on top of that next level. The roof will drop considerably and is not accurate right now, i just didnt get to that part yet. Working on creating the as-built model for our work building to prep for an addition or 3 in other areas. Aside from the perimeter, nothing else has been worked on in there. 

 

Thanks for your help!
