After drawing the area, draw another area for the hole that is set to subtract from that floor level (use the button when you define the area.)

ANSI guidlelines say count the staircase, not deduct it. The area below the stairs is counted on the first floor, the area of the stairs is counted on the 2nd. So what's the question again?:)

Mr Rex, that is only when the opening is the same size as the stairs. If the stairs create a hole, it needs to be deducted.
