Railing being drawn with White Lines

Not applicable
I create a stair but the railing is drawn with white lines as shown in the picture. You can see the tread being covered over on the left side vs the right side's highlighted stair in the pic. And as you can see in the highlighted side the railing is there.

For the life of me I can't figure out how to get the railing to be drawn with black lines. Can someone point me to the option that changes this?

What is the exact Stair object you are using?

If you are using the Stair Objects in the Lirary, there is a Rail Pen parameter uder 2D Symbol Type.

I am using the Create Stair Using Selection command and generating a custom stair.

But I think I ran into a bug? From the Floor Plan and Selection drop down menu in info bar I changed the symbol line pen to the desired pen but it didn't take. I wasn't until I changed the same parameter under the Floor Plan and Selection tab in the settings tab did the pen change take.

What was really confusing me was I had created a test pen set where I changed all pens to black and even that didn't change the rail display.

Regardless, if anyone else has this problem it's the Symbol Line Pen under Floor Plan and Selection.

Thanks for helping.
