Stair Railings in a Doorway

Hello,

 

I'm trying to draw some stairs where the railing dies into the side of a doorway opening.   In addition, I'd like a starter tread to extend through the doorway.   Trying to recreate something like in the attached picture (Entry Way.jpg), however what ends up happening is my stairs keep getting cut off (Capture.jpg).   I can make this work by leaving the wall open and framing in a doorway with soffit manually, but there has to be a better way.   I hope.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

      I can't find answers to three challenges I'm having with this stairway.  On the lower section, I need an open stairway with one stringer - treads stopping 2" away from outside wall.  The landings need to be open (like the lower section).  Then I need the top section to be closed.
       
      Is there a way to modify the lower and upper sections seperately?  How do I get the landings to be open underneath?
       
      As always, your input is appreciated!

      Is this still the correct answer?    Just to copy and  past the deck post and footers to the stairs and landing and adjust to fit under the stairs and landing.    I’ve watched several hours worth of videos and can’t seem to find the answer but I found this in the search function 
       
      Thanks

      I cant for the life of me get the two inside mitered 45 corners to connect the stairs together, or get the small section by the wall to even draw the stairs.  I also cant get the direction of the grain on the deck boards to run the right way.  I tried copy the material and rotate it, but no luck.  The stairs are just pissing me off at this point.  Also why are the treads showing up as a single tread and not 2 deck boards.

      I'm running Chief Architect Premier X12, and I'm working on a porch that I'm trying to get just right. The goal is to have posts on either end that are to the ceiling, with a third column in the center that is to the rail. I've attached a PDF of how I have it now, but I had to manually add the center post after the fact.
       
      My question is: do we have a way to automatically make that center post of a different height, or is that something I'll just need to do manually each time?
