Stair/Railing surface override

Yvonne
Advocate
Would be useful to be able to override all the surfaces of a railing (and stair) like how you would in an object.

For example I use the railing tool to model a screen and all the components will be the same surface but I would need to go into each component to override it.

Not only do you need to do each individually, they are in different menus too...

Very useful wish, I think it is essential.
Just like it is possible to override the Floor Plan Line Types and Pen of Railing, so it should be possible to override their Surface.

I think this wish also applies to the Curtain Wall tool as that is also a hierarchical tool just like the Stair and Railing tools.

Yes, very useful!
This also applies to beams and columns!

Hi Minh, 

Are there any updates on this wish?

Minh no longer works for GS, hence the Alumni tag. You would be better off asking Benjamin Dani who appears to have take over the position.
