When I place a channel shape flatwise and use the level offset tag to note the top of steel elevation, the top of steel is based on the object component endpoint.  Is there a way to get the top of steel to be the backside of the web?

There isn't a setting or anything. You just have to offset the distance x̄.

If I offset the channel member, it will be located correctly in section view, but the level offset tag will be incorrect.  Unless I am missing something, you cannot use a level offset tag to locate top of steel for a flatwise channel or for angles with unequal leg size.

I think you can adjust the section to be rotated 90° and the set the lateral location to side 1 or 2.  It you set the z-direction offset to center, you should have a flat channel, rotatied 90° with is location line centered on the web.

 

I think. . .

I reframed the area and this worked (Rotated 270 degree, Side 2).  Thanks!
