Has anyone had this? When you change your balustrade on the stairs from timber to wire or posts it goes the wrong way? How do you fix this?

This happens when you assign a Railing Panel as a Baluster in a Baluster Type Railing , instead assign the Cable to the Panel in a Panel type Railing and its all good....


This still happens in X10 too if you assign the wrong railing types...

I don't have the 'panels' option. Is there another setting that opens this? 


You will need to use the panel option on a manual railing set to follow stairs if you are using X8

See my 3rd pic above , you need to Assign PANELS , not Balusters....


BTW ..........You are in the Defaults DBX ,not the Staircase's DBX

Mick that was a new feature in X10


Oh...forgot he was X8...... but only meant he shouldn't change the Default unless all Staircase were to be the same...


This is how to do you own in Older Versions....

      I have a building which has a staircase outside of the structure that I'd like to display on the second floor plan. Is there a way to do this without creating walls under the stairs or encasing the area with invisible walls? Thanks!

      I have needed tom place stairs that go through a doorway on multiple occasions, and every time I try it would seem the program glitches and usually breaks the wall or the doorway so you can see the structural materials. The best solution I have found was placing two staircases on either side of the opening, but even that solution isn't perfect. Has anyone found a solution to this?? Am I doing something wrong? I feel like it's pretty common for stairs to go through openings, so it would seem odd to me if chief would not have an option for that.... I attached a picture of what I am encountering. I am using premier x13 beta, but this was also a problem in x12

      I'm new to chief architect and I'm having trouble with this tricky sloped wall. For some reason this weird cut out that reflects the shape of the stair railings is showing up on the ceiling. If anyone has recommendations on how to fix this please share! Thanks

      Hey All,
      My company is in the process of making the switch from Autodesk Revit to Chief Arch (Version X12) and I have been spending my time trying to create a lot of commonly used design elements we use on our plans but I have run into a hiccup. I'm trying to create a small, inset-type staircase (attached image is what I've done in Revit in the past) that is typically used on our plans to go from grade-level sidewalk to the main floor elevation. In my attempts, stairs either fail to recognize the elements around them or if I create them like I would in Revit in creates this garbled configuration where the stairs are their own room and the footprint of the stairs themselves cut a hole through the roof.
      Checking Forums, YouTube, and the Chief site have all yielded nothing and I in my limited knowledge cannot figure it out. What am I missing?

      A bit of an issue. I have two staircases. One from the basement to the first floor. Directly above are the other stairs which go from the first to the second floor. When I run "Auto Stairwell" on the basement stairs, the other stairs drop to the basement. I have never had this issue in any other versions. Why? (See attached screen shoot). Running CA12 on Win10Pro.
      Thanks in advance.
