Winders - "new shaped stair " dialogue missing

Recommended Posts

I am trying to follow the instructions on this article, https://www.homedesignersoftware.com/support/article/KB-00486/creating-stair-winders.html#Automatic, to convert a standard L shaped set of stairs to winders. 

 

However, the dialogue box depicted in the article doe not come up with I chose to make L or U shaped stairs. How do I convert these stairs to winders or how do I find the dialog box?

Here is what I see:

 

I do this:

And then the stairs appear instantly ready to place like this:

I'm using this version of Home Designer:

*** I see you said Pro 2020 ***

 

 

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

That feature is new in the 2021 version.

I updated my signature per your advice. 

 

I upgraded to Pro 2021 and I still do not see that dialogue box to convert a shaped staircase to winders. It looks the same as the earlier screen shots. 

 

Any idea what I am missing?

Click the L or U shaped stair tool.
