Hi,
Normally, the hotlink files and host files will appear almost the same in plan.
I dont know whether you
1-Created each floor completely seperate or it contained some sub-hotlink?
2-Your hotlink file and host file are created on the same template file?
3-Check the view setting in the host file
4-Check layer combination, ON/OFF in both files.

If possible, send me the file, I'll have a look. It should not be any problem...

Good luck
Cheers

There could be many things I would recommend taking a look at the layer combinations but probably more importantly make sure all of the story heights are correct as well as the cut plane settings.

The cut plane settings should be set for each story based on the floor to floor height to make sure and cut through the appropriate elements.

Also making sure that the layer priorities correct because things could be healing to elements on other layers with the same priority regardless if they are visible or not.
