Click on the staircase arrow to select it as shown below.

Move the cursor over the lower blue entity handle, it will turn yellow, click to select it. Hold down the shift key key and move the cursor upwards to 'P1' and click. You will see the arrow is now pointing down the staircase.

In the Edit text box replace 'UP' with 'DOWN' and click OK.
