Hello All,I'm currently trying to create a small stair in revit Architecture 2013. My problem with it is that I cannot seem to be able to change the walk line of the stair. By default revit places the line in the center of the line while I want it on 30 cm of the outer line of the stair to decrease the required thread depth. I've searched far to long for a solution but couldn't find any,

Is there an option that makes this possible in the revit stair creator?Thanks in advance

Maybe its just me but I am totally lost by your question.  Walk line...?  What is that?   Do you mean the stair center when you sketch the stairs by run?

What does that line have to do with tread depth?   NOTHING!

Thanks for your answer,

I can imagine my question is a bit vague. It's indeed the middle line (when sketching by run) i'm talking about. I'm trying to make a U shaped stair but I believe revit calculates the thread dept according to this middle line. So when the line is in the middle of the stair instead of more to the outside of the stair the total thread depth against the outside of the stair wil be larger. 

In my case the minimum thread depth on that line should be 220mm. When this line would be placed more to the outside, the total thread would be smaller thus decreasing the size/length of the stair.I hope my question is more clear this way.

If your question is in regards to a circular stair, then you should have clearly stated that.  We are in a business that demands clear communication.

Your stair type can be changed to set minimum tread depth / maximum riser height.   Type properties.

Yeah I know that, I'm sorry. Should have been more clear about that. It's about a U shaped stair as above stated. Not circular.

I know I can change the minimum thread depth. It is set to 220 which is the minimum. But that doesn't change the line on which it calculates the threads. When this line would be more to the outside of the stair the minimum thread depth can stil be 220 but wil decrease the depth of the total thread.

Again - this doesn't make sense, unless you are talking about a winder tread?
