    Baluster not hosting to Stair

    I created a baluster and baluster panel family and it works beautifully when I host to my floor/mezzanine. However, when I try to use the same system for my stair, it does not stay hosted. The railing keeps flattening out and hosts to the floor level. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong.

    I may just have to fake something (ugh) for my deadline, but I would like to know how to correct this.

    I attached an image of what I want to use on my stair.

    FWIW....I Really wish this worked more like curtainwalls.

    Thanks
    Jason.

    I can't tell from your image but I'm guessing your sketchline isn't inside the stair sketch. If that's correct you'll need to rework the railing so that you get your offsets while keeping the sketch line inside the stair sketch.

      Rather than moving the rail off the stair, use Tread/Stringer Offset parameter (rail properties window).

          I don’t think so. It is at least since 2013 version. I can’t remember before that.

            Perfect.
            Now for the next dilemma.

            I created a custom stair riser and tread profile...works great except for my bottom riser. The profile is extending into my floor slab. Any thoughts? I could just use the linework tool and override with invisible lines, but not my style.

            Also, I'm looking for a way to extend the stringers.

            Thanks
