Hi Everybody,

I am slowly getting my head around families but have been stuck on this frustrating problem. As you can hopefully see from the 3rd image the vert. baluster connectors along the floor are ok and run parallel to the railing but the balusters along the stairs are also level but i would lke them to run parallel to the railing above them. i have been trying in the family editor to lock the connectors to the sloped reference plane but cannot because of the shape of them. Does anyone have any ideas on how to constrain them? I would really appreciate some feedback or tips. 

Thanks in Advance Guys.
