Decomposes the handrail symbol to individual structural members for each post and rail. You should convert a handrail when you want to add, edit, or delete the positions of individual posts, rails, or perform some other handrail customization that cannot be done using the handrail symbol properties. The Handrail object will become the system parent of the individual members. Deleting the Handrail object will delete the children members. Handrails that you have converted to member parts cannot be converted back to a handrail symbol. You can place handrails as individual members during initial placement by clicking Convert instead of Finish, or you can select an existing handrail and convert it to member parts.
