DummyLeg for Horizontal Turn

I'm trying to create a dummy leg as shown on attached sketch.  I can't get any of the catalog supports to center on the pipe - they all default to match bottom of pipe. Does anyone know how to force the support to match center of pipe?

No I don't.  Thats a little unusual; virtually every dummy leg standard I've seen maintains common BOP to match the supporting steel.  May I ask what the design purpose of this configuration is?

I'm not familiar with the design intent except it is for insulated pipe. I was just given the spec and told to create the items. I can get a support to center but the pipe does not cope correctly where it connects...

Just as an FYI for anyone else interested:  I solved this problem by creating a dummy leg via a Python script and it works as shown on the attachment above.
