Newel Height

Recommended Posts

In order to change newel height on deck railing, I had to convert to panel change height of newel I picked from library and then convert back to balusters. The only dbx I found that had the check box for railing passes over newel was in the stair dbx. anyone have an easier way to simply change newel hgt so railing is in between and not over the top of newels?

Perhaps you can illustrate with a pic or two - I read what you are saying but not fully following.

I think you may have found a quirk , I just tried it and I found if I did it once in the Wall>Railing or Deck Railing Defaults before drawing the Deck , the new railings allowed the Newel to be changed from the Newel Tab ,otherwise switching to Panel, was the only option to enable the height change from Default railing height.

 

Hadn't thought about it before but not sure why we can't set a Newel Default height separate from the Railing Default height , it's pretty common in some areas

 

Probably worth reporting as a bug David.

Unchecking the 'post to rail' option allows it, if I am not missing some thing.

I believe you are right  :)  

 

Makes sense I guess , its not really a post to rail if Newels are Taller !

Sure, that makes sense. Really cool logic, you said it more clearer.
