Allow the roof planes to have more settings

Roof structure:
Similar to the one found on the roof framing settings

Roof planes:
Fascia board sizes, returns, moldings.

The cross sections should be clean showing the proper rafter size, meeting the ridgeboard above, meeting the top plates below, showing overhangs, proper fascia sizes, multiple fascias if used. (sub fascia).

Modeling individual pieces is unproductive, inefficient, archaic, cumbersome, not user friendly and leads to mistakes.

In the same token the roof plane needs to be a flexible tool since it has very unique features.

Currently I use it for ceilings, decks, balconies, floor systems etc.
Building Framing for these other items should also be incorporated in its settings.

Is this a roof plane? Floor system? Balcony? etc.
