The new Stair and Railing Tool include GDL sub-elements. Many of them are pre-defined and available by default, through the element and component settings dialogs.
To create your own sub-element, you can create and customise an element and save it as a specialised Library Part.

Create the custom Post:
Create a Railing to use the Post:
This procedure only creates the 3D geometry of the custom Post. Find out how to create a 2D Symbol here.

Check the ARCHICAD YouTube Channel for tutorials about the Railing Tool and the Stair Tool.
Is there a way to have these custom posts/panels etc be visible on plan as projected?
