Maybe I posted this in the wrong place ?
Aafter experimenting the same thing is happening in Archicad 23
Just looking at the Steel Columns in Archicad Library 23 & 24 I can make it show as 1 story up
and down -- that works !
but when I ask archicad to show on "all relevant stories" it does not work .
all of the architectural columns 23 & 24 will show on all relevant stories
why ? this behavior is not consistent across library parts
