    I hate stairs

    I'm trying to add a landing by lengthening a riser, then drawing an additional boundary line to flatten that stringer. Why do I keep getting the error message that says "Stairs require no more than two boundaries (chains of one or more Boundary Lines)."?

    I'd post a pic of the error message, but the damn pic attachment locked up firefox for me... now I'm really frustrated! lol :banghead:

    I'd really appreciate some Excedrin here .. a solution would be nice, too.

    I've seen this done before, and I've even accomplished it once. But I just can't seem to figure out how to do it again.

    Thanks
    John

    You can only have two boundary lines.....so if you added the line instead of splitting the line Revit can get confused and think you have three. Sometimes you have to redraw the whole boundary!

      You're a beautiful man, MP... I owe ya a beer

      Splitting the line! Whoda thunk it.

        If you try to modify an existing stair the solution above (may) work, perhaps not always.... If you re-build the stairs with the desired spacing of the landing (move the risers apart) that will generate the stringer flat on the landing from the start... Modifying stairs is more time consuming for these things (IMHO) than simply re-building them... especially since the stair tool is so lacking.
