Subject: Drawing stairs

Stairs can be drawn in different types and styles such as spiral, straight, cantilever, a ramp, and more.  

After you draw stairs, you can modify them as you would other entities using modify entity commands. For example, stairs can be easily moved and resized relative to a wall or slab. You can also use the Properties pane to change the stair width, tread dimensions, landing dimensions, turn on/off stringers, etc. When stairs are modified, any attached railings are updated to match the stair modifications (length, angle, width, etc.). And when you select stairs, grips display allowing you to resize and reorient them in real-time.
