I am using the standard stair railing "Guardrail-Rectangular".  To get the extensions (23" at the bottom of the stair and 12" at the top of the stair) I am editing the railing and adding a line (23" at the bottom and 12" at the top) and then setting this line slope to "flat" and the height correction to -2" at the bottom at -8" at the top in order for the handrails to end up 2'10" above the floor lines. (not sure why the height adjustments need to be different at the top than the bottom).  This method seems to work in most instances, but when detailing my stair section (8-Levels) I notice that the handrail height is not always the same height from the floor.

Has anyone else had this problem?  Is there another way I should be doing these railing extensions?

I'm having similar issues with the ADA compliant handrail extensions.  I edited the handrail family to just have the one rail using "rail placement" but can't figure out the baluster extensions.  I downloaded the baluster families from the Autodesk Revit Content Distribution website but for some reason I can't get the "handrail - round w/extension - start - offset" one to work.  Would someone be able to walk me through this?

I've never had to set offsets for my railing.  My first thought is that your lines aren't breaking at the right place.  The sloping part of the rail is going to continue the length of one tread past the last riser at the bottom, and break even with the top of the stairs.
