Greetings to all,

I'm having diffculty with one of my stringers on my switchback stairs. One of the boundaries I have created, for some reason wants to play with the uppermost striaght stair group and does not want to remain attached to the first run set. I have attached images and the revit file if anybody wants to test out the solution. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

I think your problem is the upper landing.  REVIT does not like stairs to go over themselves.  Remove that landing from your stair sketch.

Thanks, although that doesn't solve my problem. Revit doesn't like overlapping stairs. The only thing I can think of is to offset the stringers by a small number, like 1/16th of an inch so they aren't EXACTLY overlapping...argh. Thanks.

Yes, the stringer of the upper flight cannot be returning exactly on the same line as the lower flight stringer.  In other words...there needs to be 1/8" in plan between the stinger of the lower and upper fligth or else the stupid machine gets confused and welds the stringers regardless of the landing location and tread height.  I'm sure you already figured that out considering the date of the initial posts but maybe this will help someone in the future considering I am on the most current revision of revit and it still f*&*s it up.
