Exterior staircase not displaying in first floor.

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, I have a problem that I've been trying to solve but just cant figure out, i'm hoping you guys can lead me in the right direction.

I have a set of exterior stairs that leads to the second floor living space. These stairs serve as the main staircase to the entrance of a duplex that i'm developing on my property. In plan view, I can see the stairs just fine when im on the second floor, but when I toggle down to the first floor, I can not see the outline of those stairs. I've tried for multiple hours, rummaging through settings, building them in different levels and can't get it to display. What am I doing wrong?

 

I'm new to the application and i'm loving it so far. Thanks for any help in advance

If you draw stairs from the 2nd floor down, they will not show on the 1st floor.

 

You could use Reference Display to show them.

Thanks for the reply Solver, I went back and deleted the stair case and created the stairs from the first floor UP. I also created the landing on the first. I turned on reference display and can see the staircase when in the second floor now, in red. Now, is there a way to make the staircase look just like in the first floor but with a down arrow? (in black as well?) Similar to the image here.

You can change the color line style etc of all ref layers.

 

You can not change direction of the arrow.

Remove the CA arrow in the stair dbx and add a manual one - easy to control that way. Put it on a layerset that you want off in other views but can be turned on in your reference layerset.
