Would be useful to be able to override all the surfaces of a railing (and stair) like how you would in an object.

For example I use the railing tool to model a screen and all the components will be the same surface but I would need to go into each component to override it.

Not only do you need to do each individually, they are in different menus too...

Very useful wish, I think it is essential.
Just like it is possible to override the Floor Plan Line Types and Pen of Railing, so it should be possible to override their Surface.

I think this wish also applies to the Curtain Wall tool as that is also a hierarchical tool just like the Stair and Railing tools.

Yes, very useful!
This also applies to beams and columns!
