    Directions on how to attach the stairs would be helpful. Where does the translucent blue riser position? How would you calculate the rise. It would be nice if you could attached and positioned the stairs at the bottom and then drag up like an accordion and then snap to the next level.

    Hi Amy, sorry for the delay, we do agree that this article was indeed lacking of directions.
    Thus, we have now updated this article to include answering your questions.

    Do take a look back if you feel if anything else is missing.

    It would be nice to assign stairs to a level or change their starting elevation. Am I missing the location of this feature?

    Hi,
    You may assign the stairs to the desired level through the Categorization tool, and it will be registered to the checked level.

    More info on that here: Categorization Dialog: Levels Tab – Configura Help Center

    Looking for a way to add materials to the materials / staircase list.  We often use plywood.

    Hi,

    You can paint a Material to the stairs via our Material Explorer :)

    Thanks for the reply.  The term "Staircase" in the panel is a bit misleading.  What it is actually doing is changing the material of the "top plate" to stairs and platforms.  Painting a stair or platform changes the material for the entire object.  I don't want this.  The "Staircase" tool paints only the top plate.  What I want to know is how to add additional materials to the default list.  See attached.Thanks.

    Hi,

    You have a good point. I will escalate this to our Core team for resolution.

    To paint a Material to the Stairs, before applying, you can cycle through the green QuickProperties box via the tab shortcut key to choose the target location.

    Regarding the Material Select dialogue, the ones listed are CET Presets. You will have to add your own materials by going to the Customer's Own Material tab.

    Thanks!
