Break Line not showing on stairs that start below Home Storey.

BenATA
Booster

Hi all,

 

We have a housing project that has slight variation in floor heights across multiple buildings. We have set our stairs to show a break line at a certain riser (see first image). This works of in most cases (see second image) but if any of the stairs are set to start below the Home Storey the break line disappears (see third image). 

 

Has anyone experience this issue before, and can anyone suggest a solution?

Thanks!

Was this not the issue with how it reads which story the stair is on resulting in it seeing your bottom storey as the middle storey? From memory you could increase the number of stories your stair crosses to reveal the other Floor Plan Display Options such as the required Middle Storey. Set it to show a break line for the middle storey then change your linked storeys back.

I know a solution but it only works if you do not have the need for an actual storey below your ground floor.

Delete the lower storey and it will work as you expect.

But if you need that storey, of course you can't delete it.
