    Multistory Stair Railing adjustment

    (Revit V2021.1.2)

    Can you help with a question on Railings on Multistory Stairs please? I have a building with 6500mm between floors. Our stairs use 4 risers of 9 treads each to get between floors.

    I have used Multistory Stairs and it seems to be working well. This is good.

    On the three landings the Railing correctly rolls around the corner. This is good.

    But on the actual floor level the Railings stop and start.

    Do you know how I get them to joins up neatly please? Normally I would be able to edit the path in a plan view, but here because the path wraps over itself again Revit wont allow me to edit it.

    Can you help with some suggestions please?

    Thanking you in advance.

    Are those stair runs set to 'end with riser?' Because my railings don't act like that, and my stringers come all the way to the floor edge.

    I found a good explanation about this here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZQpZTUHa9Y&t=607s

    OK. Thank you both.

    My testing shows no combination of "Begin with Riser" and "End with Riser" allows the inner railing to automatically go around the transition at the floor level (Landings are fine).
    Regardless, I can now edit the path at the top and bottom to bring them together in a multi-story stair. This is good.

    This works fine for a stair with two Runs per floor. My stair has four Runs per floor and so the Railing path loops over itself. This is proving challenging to identify the start and end segments in Edit mode. If you have any suggestions on that I would much appreciate it. Thanking you.

    Does it help it you change the railing segment to "Sloped" instead of "Host"?

    I've only used MS stairs a couple of times, and as I recall this is just how it works. You're only sketching one set of stairs and railings, from one level to the next level, so it doesn't really connect the railings at the actual level since it's not part of the sketch.

    Thank you gents.

    Sloped/Host/Flat made no difference.

    There is definitely two sets of path linework representing the four flights, but I can't successfully modify them. Shame.

    Railings on multiple floors is always fun in Revit.

    I always just draw them manually (unhosted). It takes some time, but its very flexible that way.
