I am striking an annoying problem where I am generating a range of multi story modules, that utilize a range of single story nested modules within, for parts of each story
This all works fine when I first define the modules, with submodule positioned as needed, but when I come to update them with Hotlink Manager, get error report 'invalid module - linked story is missing' in relation to the nested modules, presumably because they have a different number of stories.
I don't want these sub modules to have multiple stories - the objects therein are only ever needed on one story, and I don't want stray objects from them appearing on stories above or below where the submodule objects are needed
Exacerbating the issue massively is the weird issue ArchiCAD has with module filenames - once a nested module has triggered any sort of issue, thereafter no matter what you do to correct the situation (including deleting every instance, or resaving and relinking to new saved copies of the that module), ArchiCAD repeats the error message when ever an attempt to place a copy of that module is made.
Saving exactly the same collection of objects as a module with another name will work fine.
Short of placing fake objects on stories above or below, so that there is the same number of stories captured in sub module definition, how do I overcome this?
Right now I am having to manually redefine from 3D window the whole master module every time any single story submodule within it changes - precisely the work that Module Manager was supposed to make automatic
