Can't cut walls with Voids

I'm at my wits end trying to cut a wall with a void.  I want to chamfer the corners of a wall, but I can't get even a basic void to cut from a wall.  I get the error : "This Mass has no solid geometry for its Void Forms to cut. They must be deleted, or solid geometry added and cut."

They clearly intersect, what am I doing wrong?

You are using a Mass object to cut a wall.  Mass voids cut Mass solids, not wall solids.  

 

Create an in-place family using the wall category, then draw the void shape. Use the Cut Geomety tool to pick the wall, then the void to cut it.
