Glass Handrails

Question

I use the handrail tool often to create frameless glass guardrails, but it takes a lots of fussing to get the spacing right to get even panels across the entire length. 

Wouldn't it be great to have the option to select either the upright width or spacing and evenly distribute the other based on a number like the "Move /Copy by Points" tool?

For example, you could enter 10 glass panels over the chosen length with a 2" spacing between (with an option of starting and ending spaces as well as uprights) and end up with quick and easily adjustable guardrail.

@khumennyHi, what i do is lay out a series of nodes at the post spacing i need and then draw the fence and click each node and this places a post at that location so spacing is correct.

Ah, so the railing / fence is a series of short ones? That's a good workaround, thanks.

Also to set out nodes accurately and evenly use the move by points tool.

Yes, love that tool, thanks.

I still want to call it "array" from the old days of AutoCad in the 90's
