I am trying to model roof framing. I created a Reference Plane in the slope of the roof. Now, I wanted to create a roof girder in that reference plane going from one grid to another, but when I try to snap to the grid, the snapping does not seem to work properly - the reference line corresponding to the grid line is offset from the actual location and consequently the beam ends are offset from the grid. Is this a bug or am I missing something? If this is a bug, is there a workaround?
See the video and sample model linked below.

Thanks 5kings, although yes, it will follow the slope, but this is not an issue here. The issue is how to place the the beam end precisely at the grid line.
drag the shape handle of the beam beyond he grid. Then cut te beam on the grid .
But..... Won't the beam snap on the grid intersection with the roof in a section view . You can also try to force the snap with the shortcut "si"
