Can't you make an inject that only adjusts the height of a column or wall?

I'm trying to do column inject parameters, but can't I use only columns linked Stories and Bottom and Top?

I keep changing the size as well.
Is it just a matter of choosing and changing?

Yes, you can use a selected set of parameters. Review "Element Transfer Settings" and you can save multiple sets for future use.

What do I turn off anymore so the size doesn't change?

Even testing the two columns in front changes the size of the columns.

 

If Exclude Size /Height/Elevation, the size should also be excluded, which also changes the size of the column.
What am I doing wrong?

'All other settings' includes the length, width and maybe a couple of other settings.

This can not be turned off, so the column size will always change with pick up settings / inject.

So, if it is just the height you want to change, you will have to select the columns and adjust that in the info box/settings or stretch them in 3D/elevation.

Thank you today for your cool reply.
But I don't know why archicad intends to change the size. Am I the only one who thinks it's weird?

Usually you would use pick up/inject because you want one element to be identical to the other element.

Initially (many versions ago) that is all we had.

Then GS gave us the 'transfer settings' so that we can pick and choose what we transfer.

But still, length and width is forced on us and we have no choice.

Probably someone decided that you would usually want one column to look the same (size) as the other column, which in most cases (except here) is probably true.

 

We have all of the other options we can include/exclude.

Why not length and width as well?

There may be a perfectly good reason why, but I don't know what it is.
