I think that particular setup would be best illustrated by building it as a panel railing system.  Build a panel in as much detail as you like in 3D to scale and convert to a millwork symbol.  You can also do the same for the newel post that can even include the mounting bracket and concrete footing if you like.

Let us know how it works out.

I'd start on the Chief website reading about railing walls. Once you understand the options you will see how this might be done.

Hi Eric,

I tried reading and could not succeed. I could not get the glass panel with the middle rail, as well as the bottom as what you have shown. Could you please provide me some tips?

Thank you. I tried that could not proceed. Hence i was trying what Eric has drawn. Thats exactly what I am interested in. But I dont know how to achieve that. That's why it took me a while to respond back.

I believe Eric did a simplified version of exactly that as a demonstration.

 

Did you take a look at the tutorial ?   Where did you get stuck ?

 

You can only go about this far with the automatic tools :  No such thing as a middle rail option using an automatic panel, at least not yet...    We have been hoping for a while now.

Modeling your own panels allows you to include details like the assembly bolts if you like and that custom drop panel in the center.

Probably best to make a custom panel.  But a quick way to get what you want would be this way.  This is an 80" paneled railing with a molding line for the middle rail.  Took about 90 seconds.

There's a better than good chance that you're going to want to use the "open with middle rail" option so that you can see beyond the railing in elevation view...I'd use a molding or a solid to represent the glass, on its own layer of course.

Draw it right on the railing and add the molding and set it to the middle.

      I'm using home designed pro 2021.
       
      Circled in the picture below is the area unfilled between the lower and upper roof where there is no wall.  I can extend the wall inward toward the peak to close the gap, but then area below the gap is closed off.  I've experimented, googled, and watched a bunch of video tutorials on roofs.  Actually seemed like one of the tutorial videos had a similar issue, but the instructor kinda glossed over it and changed to pitch on one roof to make it look a little better before moving on.
       

       
      After banging my head for a few days, hoping someone has the answer.

      Issue in X12 when using break tool to adjust wall for an extension over a column.
      Bare wall end fir stud and overhead framing stud can be seen in wall section instead of drywall.
       
      See attached file/pic.
       
      I do not believe soffit is viable solution as I am seeing that soffits will not frame.
      So framing is important.

      Many thanks to Solver as he addressed this issue and resolved it for my needs by applying different wall types to the wall area drawing. I posted my original files as reference and Solver's solution file (1868954996_MHD_sampletemplateplanSolutionWallEnds).
      And the solution frames out too as can be seen in file with camera Perspective Floor & Perspective Framing views.

      In past versions there was a button on the side where I could toggle on or off weather the marquis would select only things that are totally inside the marquis or anything that is touched by the marquis. Since I have been using x12, I can't figure out how to get this button back.

      Hello, I am wondering why is the garage foundation wall does not show/appear in the basement (level 0) floor where there is a door above on the first floor? (Plan attached). More over the location I have clouded shows the wall clearly, why it is not displaying at the other locations?
