Sketching a run is the easiest way to create stairs. The boundaries and risers are generated automatically as you sketch the run. When you finish the sketch, a railing is applied automatically. The Run tool limits the design of your stairs to straight runs, straight runs with landings, and spiral staircases. For more control when designing stairs, sketch the run by sketching the boundary and riser lines.
