Framing

Is there a way to have auto generated collar ties?  I have been doing mostly kitchens and baths with a few decks and porches

thrown in over the last many years and am now working on a 1,000 sf addition with hip roofs.

I think I remember putting them in once by adding an "attic" level and creating a ceiling plane. My roof was framed at 16" o.c. so I set the ceiling to frame at 32" o.c. to give me a tie at every other rafter and it worked.

I just draw them in the sections, and callout a detail. Wish there was a way automatically. I connect every rafter (per engineer) whatever the spacing. If there is no ceiling at the plate level then just use ceiling joists ties at whatever level you need. you could also use a ceiling plane high up.
