Sets the top of the stairs in a multi-story building. The advantage to using this parameter (as opposed to sketching individual runs) is that if you change the railing on one run, that railing is changed on all the runs. Also, if you use this parameter, the Revit project file size does not change as significantly as it would if you sketched individual runs.
NoteThe levels in a multi-story building should be a uniform distance apart. For example, each level should be 4 meters apart.
Sets the text for the Up symbol in plan. The default value is UP.

Width of the stairs.
Desired Number of Risers
The number of risers is calculated based on the height between levels.
Actual Number of Risers
Normally, the same as Desired Number of Risers. However, it may be different if you do not complete adding the correct number of risers for the given run of the stairs. This is a read-only value.
Actual Riser Height
Displays the actual riser height. The value is equal to or less than the value specified in Maximum Riser Height. This is a read-only value.
Actual Tread Depth
You can set this value to change the tread depth without having to create a new stair type. Also, the Stair Calculator can change this value to satisfy the stair equation.
Specific comments on the staircase.
A label created for the stairs. This value must be unique for each stairway in a project. Revit warns you if the number is already used but allows you to continue using it. (You can see the warning using the Review Warnings tool. See Reviewing Warning Messages.)
