No, there is no boom base symbol in SpotLight-I'll put it on my list for the next version.

To create the truss, you need to change the hanging angle in the OI palette to 90deg.

Can the truss tool be customized to do this?

The truss can be configured to draw a ladder. Choose the flat truss option for the truss profile and then set your lacing diameter to zero and adjust your ladder bar diameter and spacing. Voila a ladder. The hanging angle parameter will let you stand the ladder on end.

A simple boom object would be a pretty good addition. I'll add it to the wishlist.
