David Potter, I usually have been using the black cad block for most of the deck newel posts. I just thought I remembered playing around with the railing once before and the post appeared on plan view with out the cad blocks. I may need to upgrade to Premiere one of these days. Thanks for your Reply.
That process of using an existing template may be the way to go since it saves time and automatically sets the newel post in place.
Also, I usually use the deck railing tool as a landing since it also sets the post/piers and decking boards in place automatically.
Thanks for the tip.
