Is it possible to change the beam height in an auto generated post to beam porch rail?

Thanks

Try ramps(horizontal) aligned with the porch rail, use the ramp railing dimensioned as your beam, no balesters, so you can make the ramp railing hieght to be the level required for the beam.

Hint:-

-Draw streight ramp with small width

-Rails on ether left or right(it depends)

-Curve it and change the curve to number of segments = to porch edges

-Allign it with your railing wall

Outputs:-

-You should get the newels of the rail and ramp alligned auto, after snapping corners with the ramp breaks

-you should have your beam at required level or the main beams and intermediate ones as required(if you need top& intermediate beam, use it both at a time)

Expected limitation

You may not get sharp connection of beams at bents, a little tweak may be needed.I am a bit far from my PC but this method allows us to create extra fancy railings in chief.

Thanks

Or...

Select the rail in a cross section/elevation view. 

Set it's height using the Temporary Dimension.

 

Or, in a 3D view or cross section, you can temporarily uncheck it as a railing, drag the top down and then check it as a railing again.

Or, open the rail section you want to change; on the left go to "Rails"; under the Rail Profiles section click the drop down for Selected Profile and select "Beam".

 

Then down below under Selected Profile Specification, change the height to whatever you want it.

That is the height of the beam itself, not the wall. You could be right, maybe that is what he asked, not sure.
