Todd, Why would you create a wall to be used as a beam ..... Why don't you just create a beam? (Not criticising, just querying ... There's usually more than one way to do work arounds). Beams work much better than walls with the posts!

Interesting that INTERIORS mode CROWN will not generate on a BEAM.... BUT an INTERIORS mode BULKHEAD WILL generate on a beam...
so easy enough to add a crown profile (say, "American") to the bulkhead profiles (SYSTEM OPTIONS / FINISHING OPTIONS / BULKHEAD OPTIONS...)
the attached was draw with a "bulkhead".... with "American" profile added to the bulkhead profiles... then edit the generated crown to a larger size...
also note that 2016 will allow one click ADD DRYWALL to beams...

I had issues with the moulding not mitering at the corners when added to a beam profile. Also, I got in the habit of using walls for beams to show arches in them. The openings>arch works well for this.
also as a side note, how to we post images?
