Can't Create Attic Truss, No Flat Ceiling Or Floor Platform Error Msg

I'm trying to do an experiment to figure something else out and I can't even create an attic truss. It says I don't have either a flat ceiling or a floor platform but I have both. I've created attic trusses across 30' with an 8:12 slope before, I don't know what I did different this time. The plan I'm attaching is after I changed some things from the default settings, like ceiling height, in order to get a more flat ceiling.

      Hello! 
       
      I am very new to chief architect so I need some assistance.
       
      I have a two story building where the ceiling height over the living space and part of the mud room has 9ft ceilings where the rest of the house is at 8ft ceilings. I have tried changing the floor height of the upper level but it just changes my overall ceiling height of the lower floor to 8ft. 
       
      In the image I have my file with the pdf of the design below. You can see the beam going down the center (to the left of the stairs). The area to the left has 9ft ceilings with a gable roof above, and the area to the right has 8ft ceilings with another level above.
       
      How can I get the program to recognize I want to change the height over the stairs/part of the laundry/bedroom etc?
       
      Thank you!

      I'm looking for some suggestions on how to build the sloped ceiling underneath the stair platform. I can make a sloped ceiling plane, but then I don't' know how to build it out. All of the other methods I've seen require building a roof. However this does not have or need any roof framing. I guess I could build a polyline solid and save that as a soffit? Is that the best way to do it? It's kind of an odd setup if you ask me, but I need to include the detail in an as built plan for a remodel project.
       
      Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

      I'm having issues with my walls not returning over a lower roof plane on a raised section of my home. When I try to extend the walls it shows up on my floorplan inside with brick which is not accurate.
       
      Does anyone know how to fix this?

      New to CA Architect 2021. Doing an addition that includes an attic room. I'm having trouble matching the roof and cieling deminsions for that area. It includes a flat and angled cieling plus pony walls that are also exterior walls. See the sketch with finished interior deminsions. Any help is appreciated.
