"Publishing to Modules" is a lot faster than individually "Saving Selection to Module."

I thought in-place editing already is possible in Archicad!
Just unlink the placed module, edit as desired. Then, Save Selection as Module from the Modules & XREFs menu with Change the Hotlink to the saved file box checked.
By checking the Change the Hotlink to the saved file box, you can immediately replace the selected elements with the contents of the module, without having to go through the usual process.

Who takes care of what module is edited in place and who has the right to do it? I clearly see a situation where two people are editing the same module in place. Which one gets saved? Each to a new file? belies the purpose of a module.

Would the user have to define it? Or would it save ALL hotlinks to have an x,y of 0,0 from the lower-leftmost corner of the hotlink? And if one was working on a 90 degree rotated instance and saved in place, one could expect all the non-rotated instances to rotate - needs some thinking through....let's start with X.Y, but not forget Z either.
This is sort of true, but if you modify and save an instance other than the original, the location of all others will be offset by the difference.
