R2014 - See pic. No explanation needed. Why does revit do this? It was actually perfectly fine when it was first modeled. I don't know why or when it changed but trying any sort of modification to the rail just makes it go flat as if it doesn't recognize the stair host. 

THIS. IS. SO. FRUSTRATING. Starting stairs from scratch should not be the quickest solution to having to modify a railing in Revit... and yet, that is what I find myself doing more often than not!

Well I found what caused the rail to act wonky but I still don't know why... By merely extending the rail at the bottom of the stair a couple inches to the baluster (which is it's own facebased family) it completely throws off the middle section to display the rail like it is shown in my first post. 

Finding the culprit is nice but I still don't know WHY it does that!

It shouldn't do this unless you have a break in the line of the railing path at that location... but I feel your pain. I hate railings as well and we've begun relacing them with curtain walls in a couple of our projects.

You would not build this railing as you intended as it throws out your railing height needed by code.

you would have a bulaster at the last riser then a flat section to the top of the next run.

I find  it you try to draw your railings as you would build them works best.
