I am testing more efficient ways to work with modules but i come against a bug i think.
so i make a wall w windows and a rail and i save it as a module gvl 001.mod
when i drag a copy, break the hotlink change what i want and save it as gvl002,mod and activate the apply offset ... then everything is fine except for the balcony that stops being in the right position and its offset again.
I am currently using the method you mentioned but i find i get very frustrated with it because i find it very time consuming when it comes to change and update the modules (specially in large projects where the hotlink is placed in many different floorplans) and also very limiting when it comes to creating variantions of the module in a fast time.
you are welcome..hope they find a fix soon. when you talk w the developer team can you ask them if it's easier to add the function of breaking the hotlink module while keeping the nested modules in that hotlink intact as modules ?! 😜😉
Our developer has identified the cause of the issue. It is definitely a bug with the Railing in hotlinked module. Thus we have entered the defect as DEF-7026. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any workaround in the meantime.
I was unable to get their verification regarding your wish, sorry about that! Nevertheless, please let us know if you have any further questions regarding this issue. Thank you once again for spotting the bug, we truly are grateful for it!
