Stairs modeling: how to make Flight - Stringers lower than Tread

depeche

The wish is to model stairs that has ~10cm flight stringer and tread finish slips over it (like in the picture). However stair reference line is at the top of a stringer.
Don't know why, but nosing tool doesn't work as well.
Maybe I'm not seeing something?

Yes, it seems there is a (maybe unnecessary) limitation that the Stringer cannot go below the Treads, so the "Height above Treads" field does not allow a negative value.
In the case of Landings, I say I would even understand this limitation, but in the case of Flights, it seems unnecessary to me.
I will forward this to Graphisoft for their consideration.

I don't have Archicad running at the moment to test, but try using beams instead of stringers.
