Stairs with changes in materials/construction

Anyone know a good way to change a single section of stairs from one material/construction method to another without effecting the connected landings/stair sections?  In the screenshot, i have a concrete exterior stair that I want the final upper section to be wood with railing and open below, but cannot figure out how to make this happen.

 

Thanks Todd

At this point you have to make your auto height of the stair off, and you can replace the landing next to the upper stair by a psolid. So you can edit that stair independently.

Hope that helps, but may not be the only solution as others will post their takes on the issue.

Just hold the shift key down when you select the upper stair section.

 

This will put you into "multi-select" mode.  The stair dialog will then only make changes to the selected sections and not to any of other the connected sections.

      I cant for the life of me get the two inside mitered 45 corners to connect the stairs together, or get the small section by the wall to even draw the stairs.  I also cant get the direction of the grain on the deck boards to run the right way.  I tried copy the material and rotate it, but no luck.  The stairs are just pissing me off at this point.  Also why are the treads showing up as a single tread and not 2 deck boards.

      Is it possible to model this in CA? (Reasonably close.) How would I do it?

      I've tried all dbx setting combinations I can think of, looked through the discussion topics, and on the FB user group - can't find a solution to get my balusters to go down to the stair treads.  I see a few pictures of this type of application but can't figure out how to do it.  I turned the auto-rail off and am using the railing tool.  Any help with this is appreciated.

      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
