Connect to platform railing for post and adjust with doorway opening size.

From the image, it looks like your stair thinks it is connected to a railing at the top.  When the stair is connected to a railing, the railing usually makes the post, not the stair.  Since there is an obvious gap in your railing, I would first try to fix this and see if you can line up the railing post where you want it.  You can always manually place posts but I don't think you should need to in this case.  If all else fails, post your plan or contact tech support for additional help.

I usually place them manually unless I just need a quick view. I find I have much better control that way and can customize the newels and location to whatever I want.

Okay, here's my second attempt.  I made a new railing section that is horizontal on my top stair riser.  The 'newel' at the front of the top riser is a 3D solid.  Is there a way to get my stair rail to stop at the front of the top tread?

 

Thanks in advance all

No that is not yet possible.  Give it a try with a Straight railing set to "Follow Stairs".

Drawing a rail to "Follow Stairs" did the trick.  Thanks Chopsaw!

It's not usual , at least not here, for the top Tread to be flush with the Deck like that, so that is why I think the Program is a "little" confused.....

 

If you built the deck in that shape the deck railing would of gone around the staircase "bumpout" and the solid wouldn't be needed I don't think.
