Ok i have a 2 story house that I'm getting a void space between floor when I try to add a small wall section in.  The history is I put a sub floor system on the second floor with ring joist , then floor trusses, and finally my sub floor decking. The structure stacks great even in 3d. There is a small area over the front door where I didn't run the perimeter band around and it left a void the thickness of the band and subfloor, in this case it's 19 1/4 inches (18" trusses and 1 1/4" subfloor). I then proceeded to draw in a short wall 19 1/4" tall and off set it the height of the 1st floor 12' - 1 1/8" actual height. When I do this the whole 2nd floor is elevated up too the 19 1/4" above the plate on the 1st floor. Not sure what i need to anchor or not anchor on either floor. Any direction will be much appreciated. Steve Pirtle

If I'm picturing this right...I'd draw in the floor system over the front door then cut a hole in the floor system so your ring joist is there but none of the floor joists where you don't need them

If that doesn't work, make the actual wall 19¼" higher and drop it down 19¼"

 

Make sure you are using Circular Refernce points to control the floor heights in the model. If you don't know about circular reference points, check out this post - http://softplan.com/...f-house/?p=5596
