Zone area issue

I have an issue while constructing the zone correctly. My project is a mix of Walls and Doors elements drawn in archicad, and 2D lines drawn in another software. I am doing a polyline around the space I need to measure and I check the "Zone Boundary". Then I choose the zone tool and as construction method I choose "inner edge" because I need the netto area and the inside walls and doors are done with Archicad. The result is it only fill the area of one room and exclude another. I could go and add anchor points to the zone but then I will have to remove the fill of the zone under the doors and I don´t know how to do that. Any helo would be appreciated.

Images of the problem will help.

Inner edge will only flood up to a wall or zone boundary line.

Just as you can set a line to become a zone boundary, you can set a wall so it is not a zone boundary and will be ignored.

All walls are set as zone boundary. Here the screenshots with the desired measurement and one with the incorrect one.

Are you sure those internal walls are set correctly to ignore the zone or not?
