In case anyone has trouble with Yusuf's video, the method he used was an extra set of narrow stairs for the stringers.  You can then suppress the handrail on the main stair and make the risers/trim on the thin stair different from the risers on the main stair.

 

IMO, this works best with "Closed Stringers " but even with an "Open Stringer" it works very well.

Thanks Joe, for clarifying the gist of what I was trying to teach. Thanks again for taking the time to help.

One more important note is that, chief doesn't let us draw stairs having a width less than 50mm, so the last minute of the video explains how to trick it by snapping a landing with smaller width of 20mm.

Right, with Imperial Units it's a 2" minimum width.

Great tip Yusuf, we could also use this method for exposed stringers.

      I'm trying to change the material for the trim alongside my stairs independent of the riser material. I want the trim to match the baseboards in the rest of the house and the riser to match the tread. Is it possible to separate the trim and the riser material in the stair definition dialog?
