breaking and updating hotlinks

Hi,

Since ArchiCAD doesnt have a edit hotlink in place option yet (PLEASE GRAPHISOFT DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS) i recently found this method of breaking the hotlink, changing what i wanted and overwriting it with the same name. I was happy till i realised if my hotlink had nested modules in it they would also be broken/embedded.

I did a quick search in the forum but couldnt find an answer.

Is there any way to break a hotlink but keeping the nested modules?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Laszlo,

Yeah i saw that wish and already voted for it,

So I can assume there is no way to break the main hotlink without breaking the nested hotlinks then?

At this point, no, it is not possible to preserve the nested hotlinks when the main hotlink is broken.
