Duplicated Object GUID (Global Unique IDentifier) problem?

I'm trying to fix some objects that are named differently but would I assume have GUID (Global Unique IDentifier) which are the same as ArchiCAD is saying they are duplicates. This usually happens if you duplicated the object in the Finder/Windows Explorer, renamed it, then when loaded into ArchiCAD it checks the GUID first and it then says it is a dupe.

To fix objects with the same GUID you open the object and do a save as and tick the little box that says "Make new object" and it applies a new GUID to the object. Only problem is doing the above isn't working for me ArchiCAD 20.

Is there another way I can fix this?

If you go to the Library Manager Dialog, and select the library of the object, then duplicate the Library Part there, does it still cause this duplicate issue?

Hi Laszlo

I tried duplicating one of the objects as you said and saved it into the Embedded Objects. Once I reloaded the libraries it did not list the embedded one as being a duplicate. Weird

Should I repeat for the other duped objects and save them out to their respective libraries?

Yeah, it is weird.
But if it works, just do it.
