There is a reason that Roofs do not follow PBC's like Slabs but I can't find the reference. Because of that they included the following command:
Merge Elements: Roofs, Shells, Morphs
Use the Connect > Merge Elements command to enable priority‐based intersections among any number of Roof/Shell/Morphs and other elements. (At least one of the merged elements must be a Roof, Morph or Shell.)
Note: Alternatively, you can use Roofs and Shells to trim other elements (not just merge them): this is another way to enable priority‐based connections for Roofs/Shells, as well as physically trimming the target element.

Not only should we be able to set the pivot line (reference plane) to the top, bottom, core, etc., but the height for the multi-plane geometry (additional pivot lines) should be in the same plane.
Currently we have the main pivot line on the bottom surface but the heights for addition levels are measure to the top surface of the roof.
If I am trying to pitch that roof over a wall I know the height to the underside of the roof - not the top surface that will change depending on the roof thickness and pitches.

I could do with this wish right now. Working on a project where I am adding new roof planes; whenever a roof thickness is amended I then have to spend ages adjusting the new roofs up or down to realign the top surface.
