You can dynamically change the roof slant angle by choosing Change Roof Pitch from the pet palette when editing a roof pitch in 3D window. Note that the hinge for the roof is the roof pivot line.
If you want to control the display of Roof Covering in plan, you just have to go to the Covering Settings- Display Settings Under Symbol, there are the options: H- Means Home Story A- Means Above Story B- Means Below Story If you are in ArchiCAD 16 or 17, you can

In the example below I have a very basic roof plan which I need to setout my roof framing plan on. I could very simply go through and show my intended framing with some basic 2D lifework, however, if I am interested in maintaining my 3D model, then there is another way to go. Select
