I have attached a screenshot of a stair i'm developing.

I want to add 2 intermittent landings in the curved section of the stairs, screenshot attached with the landings in blue,


in the OIP I do not see an option for adding a landing. Neither in the Geometry, Genereal or Construction tab.


Is anyone familiar with this design challenge?


Thank you!

The stair has a ton of features, but flexibility is not one of them, if you want to do a great stair, don't use the Stair tool of Vectorworks, model your own, but take into account you will spend several hours doing so

There was another thread on this recently.  


Jonthan's method would work well for @Positive Space Design as it is based on the standard 3D tools.


Just for comparison, this is the NURBS tools method.  Although it uses less geometry and faster, it does bring with it a new learning curve.  

Note the key is to create a flat spiralling curve.
