Text in HotLinked Module arrives on Archicad Layer

I have a hotlink module that has exactly the same layers as the Host Project.

I have text in plan view in the hotlink module that has been placed on a specific layer.

When the Hotlink module arrives into the Host Project the text in the hotlink module is on the Archicad Layer.

Can anyone explain this to me?

When you hotlink, you give a unique layer name for the module itself in the host (vs using the Archicad Layer)?

yes - each hotlink as a Master Layer Name --- with layer turned off the entire hotlink turns off
