deck, railings and columns

Recommended Posts

When I line up the railings to the center of a column, the column base sticks out beyond the deck edge. 

Is there a way to move the railing without moving the deck?

thanks

There is a particular setting that controls (if your software has that control, not all do) that, it is an offset input box on the "Newels and Balusters" tab of each railing wall, it will accept positive and negative values until you get the effect you desire.

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

Draw the deck without railings.

 

Draw railings inside the deck. Mark them No Room Definition. Change their settings as needed. Move the railing over to the edge of the deck.
