There is a range of tools for creating Vertical Transport (stairs, ramps, escalators, and elevators). Not all these tools are available for every version of Vectorworks. For example, no tools are available on the Fundamentals workspace, Landmark workspace has some tools, and the Architect workspace has other stairs. Some tools are available but hidden away.

The Simple Stair tool can be used to create your stairs at concept stage. This tool is only available on the Landmark workspace. But if you want a fast simple stair, then this is the tool to use. If you are using the Architect workspace, you can add this tool yourself.
