Hi Hasse,

When you hover the mouse over a step nosing and click right, you can use the step shaping options.

The Japanese”left and right” options applied to alternate steps will give this sort of stair:

You can draw a polyline in DXF and add it to the shapes library and have any shape for the nosing.

Just go to Parameters>curves and then click the Import button:

When the curve is imported you can redimension it and make it fit you step.

All the best,
