Show Family Placement Direction Indicators

There are times in which when you place a family, such as a rectangular piece of furniture, you have no idea if the front is facing the back and if the back is facing the front. This is because we hide the model geometry in a plan view and use a filled region in its place. It would be nice if during placement there were some indicators of where the front, back, left and right sides are, almost like how we label the reference planes in the family.


For now, I have gone into some of the default families and added the Flip Controls to the front side of the family (similar to how we have the flips controls at the front face of a wall) to aid with placement.
