Good Afternoon All,


As I am relatively new to StairDesigner the issue I have is most likely a result of my incompetence, but nevertheless I am going to pose the question as I just cannot find the

I go to the properties of the stair on the right side of the menu(while in 3D view), I go to “Stringboard parameters”. Then sub-menu “Position above Nosing”.

I have set the offset to 50mm. (Otherwise the tread will touch the edge of the stringer on the foward side.)

This also causes the stair to extend above the preset height of the stair. Please see picture attached.Question.jpgImage Enlarger

I am sure I am missing something, but there should be a way to not let the stringers extend…

Any pointers in the right direction would be greatly appreciated!
