Question

I have been trying to configure rather simple stair.  In 2018 it nearly impossible, but in 2019 I am getting close.  My main issue is that I am getting error messages (two treads are partially melted..., etc) that doesn't explain what is wrong and it does not make sense geometrically.  So I am wondering if anybody knows which settings are causing this. Also, I arrived at this configuration by trial and error changing different values till I almost got what I wanted.  Also, it is not possible to have nosing in this stair, I unlocked overall stair dim .  Attached is line drawing of the stair and above is VW stair which has one offset set at 2" and it cannot get smaller.

All the stair tools to date remind me of the line from Dante's Inferno often shortened to L.O.S. :

 "Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch'intrate"

so I managed to get it done with legacy custom stair tool.  I think there should be a check box "override stair tool logic"

The stair tool sucks and has for sometime. Go look at archicad’s if you want to see something better. There’s a long thread on hear from jim Wilson asking for suggestions to improve it.
