Adding Deck Stairs
Both straight and curved deck stairs are supported by
Realtime Landscaping Architect. Deck stairs are easy to place and can wrap
around multiple deck edges and corners if needed.
To add stairs to an existing deck:
Click the Add Deck Stairs button that appears near the top of the screen,
under the Building tab.
Move your mouse over the edge of a deck in your design where you would like to
place stairs, and click to add the stairs to the deck. A brown line will help
you to visualize where the steps will be placed before clicking.
To move existing stairs:
Click the stairs to select them.
Click the stairs again, but this time hold down the left mouse button as you
move the mouse to reposition the stairs. Note that deck stairs cannot be moved
to a different deck object.
you wish to place multiple sets of deck stairs, click on the Add Deck
Stairs button, hold the Ctrl key on your keyboard, and then simply
click once for each set of deck stairs you wish to add.

stairs will move to the grid intersections as you attempt to add them. You can
toggle the grid snapping off by pressing Ctrl + G on your
keyboard. For more information, see Snap
stairs can be added only to decks that are already in your design; deck stairs
can not be added to other objects.
