I am trying to make stairs with an landing. I am having to 2 problems with the macro. I am trying to make a bar grating stair tread with side plates that are bolted to the stringer. The only problem I am having is I can't change the bolt type. Every time I choose a different bolt type it changes back to "EN ISO 10642 bolts". The other problem I am having is that I can't control the landing stringer top depth when I use a section profile vs. a plate for the stringer. I am using Advance Steel 2020. I have attached pictures of the problems I am having.

Does anyone use Power Pack to make stairs? If so, How do you get around the problems I am having?

Not sure what is happening with your bolts, I don't have the same problem with both the 2021 and 2022 versions.
You should be able change the landing depth on the Stringer-Positioning-Relative to landing-Input.
I did notice your dialogue box is a bit different to mine, what version and build are you using?
Can you attach your model?

Sorry I've just seen you are using 2020. :-)

I contacted the support and they told me the bolt problem use fixed with 2020.1 version and the stringer offset is fixed in the 2022 version. I will not be using the stair part until we update to 2022 version of Advance Steel. I wish they would have fixed the offset problem with the 2020.1 version because I am not sure when we will move to a newer version of Advance Steel. Thanks for trying to help Mick Allitt!
