    Sorry no way to acheive this with railings. I know it should be simple but its not.
    There are a few work arounds;
    1. use a curtain wall , turn off glazing panel adjust grid to suit verticals then edit profile.
    or
    2. Use a beam system see here,edit profile, then add a beam for top rail

    If it ain't broke, fix it till it is.

        can be done, but only with one railing direction at a time. split the railing base line and mark one section as 'sloped' and give it an offset. all railings will follow that slope, but you can always duplicate and make a non-sloped version for a straight bottom or top. balusters should begin at a level rather than a rail number to keep them aligned at the bottom (or top, for that matter).
        There must be a better way...

          yep, you are right, another workaround but at least you are using a railing. either way still bit of a workaround.
