Placed hotlink disappears without being deleted (AC23)

Hi,

My office is working on a terraced house development. Building envelope is created in the "block file", all internal typologies are placed as hotlinks. We've been doing this for years and now suddenly one hotlink keeps disappearing - without being deleted - just when you update the hotlink. It will not be listed anymore in the hotlink manager. Of course, when this happens, all linked markers and dimensions will disappear with it. This is a huge problem and we can not figure out, what is happening here. Has anyone an idea what causes this? This project has been set up in Archicad 23 (don't judge please).

 

Operating system used: Windows 11

How is the placed hotlink file generated? One typical culprit would be the Archicad story structure of the source or module creation file got modified, and the hotlink is now fetching the content of an empty story.

hi. We have a seperate file that contains all the building-typologies we use in this project, story settings are the same across all files and are not modified. 

The hotlink gets exported via bold marquee tool - External content - save selection as module
