Scott,

How is the Flare Tool not working for you?  Are you using the edit handles after selecting that tool to adjust the ends of the stair?

Yes I am.  but the flare option only lets you go so far.  if you pull it too much, it rounds it.  Need to go from 6' wide to 9' wide.

maybe not.  I want a nice straight line from 6' to 9'.  it keep wanting to curve them. is there a way to turn that option off?

Try using the technique Dennis mentions in this thread.  I think its probably the best option...

Winders don't work.  You would think Chief would make this a lot easier.  The stairs don't turn which is what I can do with a winder.  I just need to angle each step.

Winders will automatically cut to the walls...

ok.  I'll have to play with that.  What level is your deck on and what level did you build the invisible walls.?

Doesnt really matter what level you build on as long as your height are set correctly.  The stairs and walls should just be on the same level as each other.  Also...

 

You don't necessarily need to use invisible walls.  You could use any wall type (visible or not and displayed or not).  You just need to have walls of some sort in order to utilize that automated winder behavior.

      I have an octagonal shaped room (silo, 3 stories tall) and I need to build a stair case along the outer wall, following the shape of the octagon, with winders in the corners. What is the best way to go about doing this? I can't seem to figure out how to get the angles correct, the railings to work, get it to create winders on the corners, or get it tight to the wall.

      Hello, I need help creating this specific balaced stair in chief architect premier x12. 
      The only thing i could think of was to manually create every step from slabs. I still need to corect some steps from plan view but at least the height and length are good - now how can i add the rails on the inside and outside walls?
       
      Or maybe is wrongfully thought from the start; what is the simplest, smartest way to create this type of stairs?
