Stair risers

KeesW
Advocate

I am drawing an existing garden stair with 200 - 220 high risers. I've changed the default settings for stairs to allow risers upto 220. The Archicad 26 stair tool only appears to permit risers upto 191mm - regardless of the default settings. The Cadimage polystair seems to allow it but has other problems which make it unusable. How can I alter the Archicad stair tool to allow non-standard risers above the 191 mm legal height?.

I came across this the other day. The stair limit is applied as "less than" rather than "less than or equal to". Increase the riser limit and it should work. I think I had to change the limit, close the object and then reopen it for the new limits to update all the options.

Thank you. I figured that out myself - eventually! it was the '2R + G' that controlled these items and by changing this I was able to get the stairs to work.
