I am trying to make a loop on the end of my rail and it isnt working. I have attached a picture of the rail and the settings that I have it set at. There doesnt seem to be any way to change it. I am looking for just a reguar loop that goes out from 12" from the front of the first tread.

Hello Alic,

It seems you have created a loop on the Hang off rail-Grab rail end instead of the Handrail-End of handrail. See the attached print screens they might help you achieve your desired results.

Hope this helps.

Best Regards

I know what I was trying to accomplish. I wanted a 12" loop from the start of the tread. If you notice my settings, I have it set as a loop in the hangoff rail and that is precisely what I was after. The only difference in your settings and mine is that I had it set to 1" where yours was 7-7/8". I changed the number to multiple different lengths yet the rail itself didnt change. As you can see in my photo, the connection point or rail metric has a bug in it.  Since it has been over a month since my original post, I have since figured it out by modeling without using the stair metric and adjusting piece by piece manually. Here is what my desired rail was supposed to look like.
