I have a curving meandering ramp, with handrails that were a little buggy (jumped levels here and there) but now they seem to be following their host OK.  Except:  In places, the handrail's balusters float a little above or a little below the ramp, almost as if they're following a slightly different slope.  I am using Revit Architecture 2009.  Has anyone had this problem?

 The ramp is built from a series of arcs.  I'd have liked to use a spline but apparently there is no option for this (arcs and lines only).  The ramp's slope is flattening out to level at each point where the arcs connect; this appears to be causing the difference in slope between the ramp and the handrails.  Is there a way to fix this?

Thanks for any advice you can give,

Have you tried splitting the railing into more segments?
