Like the title describes i have a footing that i need to have the bottom of it match the bottom of the column but everytime i attached it to th column it forces the footing down so the top of the footing is at the bottom of the column. Then when i try to offset the footing to push it up it wont let me because it wants the top of the footing to remain attached to bottom of the column.  Is there a way to have the bottom of the footing attach to the bottom of the column instead?

Unfortunately not with the isolated footing tool.  You'd need to use a foundation slab or floor.

We did find a work around today.  As long as your ref level in your family is set to the bottom of the foundation when you attach it to the column in the project you can create a new level above the column base level or use a reference plane offset higher where you would like the top of the footing to be in relationship to the column and then change its base level to that in the properties.  It remains attached to the column but its base is level with the bottom of column the only hinderance is that if you want to move the column you need to set the footing back down to its original level first then move the column to keep the relationship otherwise the footings offset will force the column back down again and this time you wont be able to change the level in the properties.

I found a solution.

Edit the STR Column Family so the BTM Ref level is Below a newly created Ref. Line with a parametric dim. to allow the attachment point of the footing to be above the base of the column. see pic.

You can then adjust the 'z' offset to meet the top of the footing.
