I want to first thank SoftPlan for the improvements made to roof mode, specifically the fascia and soffit areas.  However there are still a few things that need to be fixed.

When offsetting the soffit the gable freeze board aligns with the fascia and will not snap to the soffit.  Also the freeze bd extends past the bird box, should stop at the vertical soffit back of box.  And the vertical soffit at the back of the box offsets also, this should stay flush with the horizontal soffit below.

Also I am not able to add a transition board when building a dutch gable.  To add a transition trim between the pitched roof and gable end wall I normally have to add banding to accomplish this.

Sorry SoftPlan for ranting on.....

If anyone has had success in these areas, please share.
