notch beams perpendicular to each other

I have a situation where need to frame a W14x30 into a W14x61.  When I perform the Notch command, the W14x30 is only partially notched. The W14x61 is taller by .05 in. I tried to notch the W14x30 by ending it at the flange edge of the W14x61.  I also tried to notch by ending the W14x30 on the other side of the W14x61, both attempts yielding no results.  Any guidance to resolve this is greatly appreciated.

I think you will need to first increase the length so that they intersect.
Can you attach the assembly here?

Found a solution to my own question:  Trim/Extend W14x30 to the face of W14x61, then Notch.

I might add, from experience, anytime you are doing a notch function that also requires a trim... do the trim first, so that the G_L cut length will be correct.  We've found (at least in 2011) that if you notch first and then trim, the length value does not update.
