I want to create a reference plane to coincide with the tops of the columns I am putting in for a pier and column foundation. Should I create a workplane that will move with the tops of the columns or should I create a horizontal level to do this? If I use a level, I don't want this level to appear in my exterior elevations. Do I just hid it?

What is the purpose of this reference plane? Is it to lock the height of the columns? What do you want to achieve?

We often use levels for this and hide them where we don't want them  (that level could be on a workset that is normally turned off).  You can use a simple reference plane but other users are quicker to delete those than levels.
