Taking the advice I learned on this site...I created a deck railing wall definition which adds a layer to the inside of the deck rail using "opening no material". This "trick" does offset the deck rail...moving the entire rail, posts and rail together toward the inside of the deck so that the newels don't right on the edge of the deck. It just looks more realistic.
However...this also increases the overall wall width...and "sometimes" I end up with a wall line on the inside. I don't want this wall line to appear....and on some plans it doesn't. Is there a way to turn off the wall lines? I thought it might be a layer setting...but, after some trial and error...I don't think it is.
Any help and/or better ideas would be appreciated.

I am just trying to find a way to make my fencing posts to align with the top of my roof plane (image attached).
I haven't created them individually I have created them using a "straight railing" wall and then converting the "Rail Style" to "No Rail". I've also tried changing the "Newel/Posts" section to "Post to Ceiling" although I need it to the roof.
Sorry the software I am using is Chief Architect Premier X6 for Mac.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
