i have came across this once befor but now a co-worker had the same question.

when we draw the guide line for the handrail all work well, but some times th toe plate at the base of the handrail is on the outside of the handrail. it is like if you start your guide line via left or roght it determands witch side the toe plate is located. witch it isn't to bad if it is just a small run but when you have one run that is zig-zaging all over the place you dont want to have to re draw the guid line from the opp. way.

is ther a way that i can flip it from one side to the other? kinda like hitting the spacebar on a column.

if i need to post a pic of what im talking about i can just let me know.

All components for handrails have an offset setting.  So all railings are handed.   When you draw a railing, you will see a flipper that allows you to flib the railing orientation.


This offset setting is very important and you sometimes need to set up multiple railing types to take advantage of this control.  The sketch line for hosted railings mus reside over the host.   Stairs with railings mounted to the outside face of the stringer is one place where you have to have enough offset to be able to keep the sketch on the stairs.
