How to create
The floating stair can be created either by modifying an existing stair or directly.
In ARCHLine.XP there are three types of stair to choose from the properties dialog:
a. Staircase with concrete body.
b. Stairs only with treads.
c. Floating stair.
The structure of the staircase is not changed by the support. It means any support structure can be made under an existing staircase.
