Labeling railing components

How do we label the components of railings?

I've learned recently that there's a special tool (Document > Annotation > Label Components of Selected Elements) for the labeling of stair components, and I thought this tool should work for the railings as well but that didn't seem to be the case unfortunately as the tool name was grayed out when I selected a railing.

Like stairs, railings have components to which you can assign classifications and custom properties but there seems to be no way of pulling those data and display in any type of labels currently available. Am I missing anything?

Currently (as far as I can see) its not possible to label individual part of a railing. Whilst you can tab through to parts of a STAIR to label specific bits it doesn't work with RAILINGS
Hopefully this will be fixed soon.

David, thank you for mentioning the tab through feature for the stair parts which I did not know. It works great, and yes, I hope the same feature will be implemented for the railings soon.
