For instance, I had a "U" shaped stair I placed in a project. I needed to do minor tweaks to the flight widths and landing depths and heights. It was a much more involved task than necessary I feel.
I don't really want this to get into a stair lesson (but it looks like it is heading that way), and I can understand you frustration with the stairs and rails as there are so many options and ways of doing things.
But it does depend on how you place the stair.
Favourites are good for setting your default stair.
So once you have one you like, save it as a favourite.
When placing the stair (U-shaped in this case), if you just click the ends and corners, without using the pet palette options, you will get a nice U-shaped stair but it will be hard to edit as it has no nodes for the landings.
However, place it using the pet palette and you will have nodes that you can stretch.
As you stretch them the treads will adjust as well.
To change the flight width use the settings dialogue and they will all change.
Or select the 'Boundary' and you can adjust just one flight.
Be sure to select the 'Baseline' when you want to edit the landings/flight lengths.
The landing heights will adjust as you change the tread configuration and the overall height of the stair is usually locked to the storey level above.
