I feel that I've tried everything to get this VERY simple baluster placement exercise to work:

I have an assembled stair with default nosing profile set to 0".

I have a railing family with balusters set to be spaced 11" apart such that there is a baluster aligned to the front edge of each tread.

The problem is that the balusters are placed on their centerline at the edge of the tread. Nosing profiles and such do not change this. I tried to create an empty baluster placement offset the 1/2" I need for the baluster to align, but the pattern then becomes spaced at 11 1/2" per baluster and will not maintain alignment with the front of each tread. If I add a post with the same baluster profile at the beginning and offset 1/2" it works for the first two balusters, but then falls apart after this. 

It seems like there should be (or there is lacking) a parameter to adjust the overall pattern to get the alignment I want. Or I guess I'm just not seeing something obvious. Is there some other parameter that is hidden somewhere that allows me to do this because I have tried way too many combinations of pattern offsets blank balusters and its getting to point where I might as well model an in place family and do it manually.

Nevermind. I just have to keep placing them one by one until I finish. Blegh.

When I want more control, I do the ballusters as a seperate rail from the handrail.  Both are railings in the same place.  Then you can shift the balluster only to where you want it.

g'day from down under.

from your drawing it appears as though the concrete floor and ceiling above landing etc will not give enough clearance above stair tread at nosing.

here in oz, we need 2m (6'8") clear ht above nosing.

here in oz we also have rules about the gap between the treads, and the balusters no more than 125mm ( 5") .

might be different up your way.

cheers
