the stair tool doesn't allow for stair that is composed of two raisers and one tread, is this right??? or is there a trick?

It is an unfortunate restriction because in some jurisdictions and contexts a single tread is permitted.


Therefore either:

- add Simple Stair to your workspace and use it instead (in Building Shell); or

- add Custom Stair to your workspace and use it instead (in Legacy).


A third option is to model it manually and then create a hybrid symbol of it.

This a much requested omission in the stair tool, we regularly come across single riser 'stairs' in refurb work to old buildings, my own offices in a 19C converted stables building have this.
