Stairs have always frustrated me, so maybe this is a simple thing that I don't know about yet, but is there any way to better control the way the stringers join at the inside landing corners on L-shaped stairs? Below is a screenshot of what I'm talking about. Thanks.

What do you want Revit to do here?  It can't join like the otherside because you don't have enough space.  Maybe you should have a tread width there before the landing on the upper portion.

 

That left striger looks higher than the right stringer.  Is that just an optical illusion?

BTW - It looks like your carriage stringer height is too high because nose of the treads are above the stringers.

Well, I think I would like the lower inside stringer to continue up to join with the upper inside stringer similar to how the upper outside stringer continues down to join the landing. Not sure if that's what will make this work, but it seems like it should be physically possible, if not possible in Revit. This is modelling an existing chemical plant from drawings 10-20 years old, some hand-drawn and badly scanned, with quite a few revisions on them, so I know that one way or another, these stringers have been joined up in real life, if I can just fill in the missing dimensions and figure out how to translate that into "Revitese". But I've had this same problem with getting stuff to join at the inside corner on other jobs too. So I was just wondering if there's something I'm missing here. There's a lot more controls on stairs as of R2013, but I can't find any way to control how the stringers join at that corner.

Left and right stringer are same height.

Yeah, I hadn't gotten the carriage height adjusted yet when I took that screenshot.

It doesn't work - look at your geometry.  The sloping left channel can not meet the top of the landing carriage beacuse that point is inside your landing area.

 

Check that out in a cross section.  If these are truely the stringer heights and if the landing carrage is this low, then they had to weld a closure piece on that cut end of the left stringer.  Post the section through the landing so we can see both stringers.
