Old School Simpler Railings without Baluster Placement dialog box

Did you know that there is a different style of Railing description?  This style does NOT have a ‘Baluster Placement’ dialog box.  The only Baluster settings in this form of Railing are essentially to select a Baluster family and set a separation (see image).

If you want to use this simpler type of railing definition, you can still download a sample file from Autodesk that includes this older method.

This issue is similar to using legacy mass forms in newer versions of Revit.

The difference is the change of the features from version 6 to 7. Prior version railings and stairs did not upgrade to include the new features of 7. You had to make the stair over with a brand new stair in the new template…if I recall correctly.
