Hi all,

This wish is regarding an ability to bow or radiate a stair without going into and editing each and every tread and riser. This would probably require a new handle to create a two point curve on the bottom or top of the stair.

Can you show an image of what you require?

Editing the baseline of a stair will alter the shape of the structure - the treads will be perpendicular to the baseline if you curve it.

Editing the borders of the stair will just affect the shape of the treads and risers - this boundary can be any shape but the treads will remain perpendicular to the baseline.
You can edit the extents of all treads at once by adjusting the boundaries.

Or you can edit the shape of each tread one at a time.

I thought that might be what you meant after I posted.

Unfortunately you have to edit each tread separately as you have discovered.
It is a little odd as you can select all treads/risers at once and edit properties like materials, accessories, nosings, etc.
But you can't alter the shape of them all at once.
I guess because each one will actually be a different shape.

So yes a bow or rotation option would be nice.

Barry.
