The only method I can think of that could be somewhat automatic would be to create a symbol of the post base and the post; then adjust the z-axis stretch plane accordingly so the post base doesn't stretch when you resize the symbol for the correct post height.

The whole Simpson catalog is in the lib, but you will have to place one manually, nice thought though. Likewise we would also like hangers to be automatic. I think Michael (alaskason)l has a system for that.

A while back Scott Hall(DSHALL) incorporated a manually made symbol with a holdown and post and the post label, all in one. it was Genius at the time. I wonder if he still has those. I know there were videos, but where? is the question. That was all before we had post and beam labels.
