Making angle brace supports for second floor balcony

Recommended Posts

{I have Home Designer Architectural 2021}

I'm planning a project that has a 12' x 4' second floor balcony.  It extends over the buildable space on the lot so I can't have posts down to the ground.  The floor joist are running the wrong way to do a cantilever deck, and I'd like it to have strong support below for snow loads as I'm in the western mountains of Maine and we get it pretty good!  I'd like to have braces from the outside edge of the deck back to the side of the house.  I don't see any obvious way to change the deck support in the object dialogue.  Any suggestions are welcome!
