Hi, I have created a hot linked module of a toilet block that I have repeated. I now find that I cannot do automatic numbering through, document, element ID manager, because change ID is not available. Any advice appreciated. Cheers Scotty
Thanks, but this doesn't actually describe how to do id door numbering, and labelling elements is still not available, but it does seem like it is saying that if its a hotline that you cannot edit the ID. It would appear that the only way to edit individual element ID is to break the hotlink?
I have a related question. I'm happy to have a separate door schedule for each of my unit plans. And I've figured out how to keep the unit plan doors from showing up on my building door schedule... but here's my question:
How do I get the door tags meant to be seen in the unit plans to not show up in the building plan while still allowing the doors scheduled in the building plan, i.e. not part of a unit, to display their tag? I've placed the unit door tags for the unit plan enlarged scale and they really are awful at the building scale...
You should play with Model View Options (MVO) Combinations.
Doors can be set there to be shown with or without Markers.
Set up one MVO with Door Markers shown and one MVO with Doors Markers not shown.
Create separate saved Views for each option.

Yeah, the problem is I want to show some door numbers, i.e. the ones that are in the main building plan file, just not the ones from the hotlinked unit files...
... and I want to see th door numbers in the hotlinked files...that's where the unit plans live.
It's kind of a weird problem because we have two almost identical buildings, and the PM wants the door numbers related to room numbers, and since the room numbers are 4 digits to account for which building they are in, the door numbers are currently large, and each have a unique number.
Unit door numbers are simple and not all unique... i.e. all bedroom doors have the same number... so showing the unit door numbers on the building plan is conceptually not helpful at best and really confusing at worst...
I'm wondering if I make a "building plan" MVO in the unit plan file (i.e. with the same name as the "building plan" MVO in the building file, but with the doors turned off in the unit view "building plan" MVO, would that work? or does the parent file even know anything about the unit plan MVO's?
