Please Add the Option to use a Custom Material for lines of taxiway paths and painted hatched areas

Hello,

Can you please add an option to use a custom material for the lines of taxiway paths. Right now the only way to use custom materials for lines is to uncheck the box for lines in the taxiway paths and draw a painted line above it, which makes the process redundant and doubles the amount work.

Also, painted hatched areas need an option to use custom material or at least an option to pick a custom color.

The only way to do it now is to add a custom DDS to the project with the same filename as the MSFS default material, but this will change the lines for all the default airports.
