I need to create stairs that go from my deck and porch down to the ground. How do I do this?
When you draw stairs in a Home Designer program, you normally begin on the current floor and draw in an upward direction. The program seeks the exact height of the floor above and snaps the stairs to that height if at all possible. It produces stairs with consistent treads and risers in the process.
When you need stairs from a floor platform to the ground use the Straight Stairs tool.
