Hotlink not showing all elements

Hi all.....
We've started working with hotlinks, but seem to be missing elements in the "Master file"

I have:
1x "Master" site.
1x Module A
1x Module B

Module A and B has different storey settings.
Module A and Master Site has the same storey settings.

Module A is missing some elements in the Master Site.
Module B, with different storey settings, seem to show all the elements.

Below is what Module A looks like:


But this is how it shows in the Master Site:


This was the original storey settings of Module A and the Master Site: Same Same.


I then added an additional "top storey" to the master site and re-linked Module A, but it made no difference:

This is corrupted element. One node of the 3d element geometry just jump far far away.

To solve this problem there are two solutions:
1. To understand what this element is. Try to select only this element and identify. Then it can be re-created again. In very rare cases walls connection might give this glitch.
2. Open hot linked pln file in ArchiCAD in mode "safe and repair".

Into the same "Master Site" is hotlinked Module B.

Module B is showing correctly, but it has different storey settings to the Master Site.

This is the Module B:


This it how it shows in the Maste Site


And this is the storey settings of Module B and the Master Site

It looks like that when you hotlink your file, you choose to show only one floor. That might be the reason of disappearing elements - because they belong to another storey.
When you create new holink, the new window appears to choose all floors or selected storey:

Its working now.

The settings that is shown earlier in the tread are all correct.

But "updating" the hotlink didn't update the missing elements.

I deleted the original hotlink completely and re-hotlinked it.

Seems to be working fine now.

I have now developed a different challenge with hotlinks.

The hotlink shows a floor that is about 6000km long
Yes 6000km.

It seems to be part of the hotlinked module, but the object/floor doesnt seem to be in the module.

I've deleted to module, resaved the module, re-hotlinked the module, but the object still shows in the master file, but not in the module file.

Any ideas?
