Transfer multi story building into new Archicad file

Hi all. I have been working on a multi level building and now want to copy into a new file. 

I use the thick marquee to copy all stories, however only 1 story is transferred?

 

Appreciate any help!

Thanks

There is an option under the file menu to ‘Merge’. You can import an entire model or all of the layouts. I don’t have access to Archicad at the moment to say exactly where it is but it’s definitely in the File menu.

Cool. I assume you know that you won’t be able to modify the model without opening it in the original file.

I haven't hot linked it so its fully editable. I simply merged the mod file. 

Or, if you did hotlink it, you can break the hotlink.
