in AC21, Isn't possible to edit the stairs previously created with stairmaker?
Beside the new stair tool (which is great!) ... why hasn't stairmaker kept for a couple of versions yet to edit moved project from Ac20 to the new versions?

The old stairs are now just objects and can still be edited by selecting and opening the settings dialogue.
From memory all the old settings are there.

Unless I'm missing something, it seems that you can only edit the graphic attributes of a stair object created in v20, but not edit the stairs' structure (i.e. tread dimensions, riser dimensions, etc.)

Exactly.
I moved a project from Ac19 to 21 to use the new cinerender features and I Noted that theres no chance to edit the structure of stairs but only the graphics.

I see - everything seems to be there except for the "Edit Stair" button where all the sizes are set.
I don't see any way around this.
Apart from cosmetic changes if you need to remodel the stair then it will need to be re-done with the new tool.

In the reference guide in the migration section it says that old stairs will be converted to objects with "limited GDL parameters".

I wasn't expecting stairmaker still there (effortlessly) to edit already modded stairs
