Need a little help with framing.

Brand new here. I have only been using this program for a very short time.  I have spent about 6 hours now trying to get the framing right on the wall between the kitchen and the living room. The opening is visible in the middle image of the screen shot with an opening on either side of the kitchen vault. No matter what I do I either have the upper half of the wall cutting across the vault or I end up with an opening on each side of the vault. I tried manually framing (right side of screen shot) in the walls from the top down in the openings automatically generated on walls and even then it still doesn't close off the wall. I even tried reshaping the walls with no luck. I have no idea what I'm doing wrong. I'm using Home Designer Pro 2022 on a iMAC running mOS Monterey. Thanks in advance for any help you might can offer.

One more thing. I know I have other issues and lots to learn as I have only been at this for about two weeks. My design is still a work in progress and it's been fun to learn but this is the one issue I'm tackling now. I'll move on to the others as I progress.

*** I see you said Pro 2022 ***

 

 

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

Since your question is about framing, all someone needs are walls and a roof. Delete everything else.

You need a wall to have framing. Try drawing one to fill the opening and set it to Roof Cuts Wall At Bottom

 

Did you try this?

I did, thank you?  It got one half of the issue fixed but not the other half. I would think it must have something to do with the ceiling plane vault for the kitchen being off now. I'm playing with that later tonight. Soon I will get my signature all set with all the info about my comp and software. I just joined late last night and today has been such a busy day. Thank you for your help.

Thank you. I had a few minutes and tried it again and It took a few attempts but I finally got it to work. We close on an ugly house on Monday and this is the plans for its renovation/flip. I needed the software to give my wife the visual. I've been doing this for over 25 years but this is going to be our biggest renovation to date.  Again thank you for the help.
