Property applicable for any element of the drawing

Not applicable
Hello, using the Property Manager I created a database of all the Canadian DDN in MasterFormat and UniFormat. In classification I choose "all". That was we should be able to apply them to any element of our drawing. Problem is, I can not apply my MasterFormat properties to all elements. It function only for windows, doors, openings, railing... But doesn't apply to walls, columns, roofs, etc. So only apply to the "accessories" and the the structure. The difference between the two is that I created new properties for Uniformat and use former properties and modify them for MasterFormat.

Works for me in Archicad 24.
Try to create a brand new file from the default Template, then delete all Properties and all Classifications, then import the XML file and see if then it works with Walls, Columns, etc.

Finally I decided to export my properties in a XML, delate them and imported my XML. I thought I was a genious because I was now able to apply to anything I tried. But no, I'm not. It still have a lot of materials who don't takes my properties. Most of them show my properties but don't let me setting them. Some others don't show them at all. I'm using a special template for estimation. I can not start fresh.

Does it has a way to set them has "show and allow does properties on anything"?
