Place Module Dialog Box

Locking a Master Layer has priority over the Delete and Break Hotlink commands in the Hotlink Manager dialog box. These commands only act on modules with an unlocked Master Layer.
Note: For best results, use the same layer structure in both the source and the host file.
Once this instance is placed in the host file, its Master ID is assigned to every element of that Hotlinked Module, as an extension of their element ID: the original element ID is kept, but is extended based on the Master ID of the hotlink.
Note: To display this full Zone ID, make sure that the Zone Settings are using the “Full Element ID” display form.
Type a value in the Orientation field if you want to place the Module at an angle that is different from the one defined in the original file.
By default, fixed-angle elements (e.g. labels or zone stamps set to “Fixed Angle”) will not rotate if you rotate your module; the angle remains fixed.
Height/Elevation values: Positions relative to the actual story of the original file are applied. When placing the module, you can type a value in the Elevation field to define the height at which the Module will be placed, i.e., an optional vertical offset added to the elements’ original story-relative elevation.
Adjust to host project structure: Top Linked elements will stretch or shrink to match the corresponding story structure of the host file. (Doors/Windows whose sill or header is linked to a particular story will adjust to the host file’s story structure.)
Remove Top Link and use original height: Top Linked elements will be transformed into “Not Linked” elements, and will retain their fixed original heights. (Doors/Windows whose sill or header was linked to a particular story in the source file will lose the story link, and instead will be linked to the Wall base.)
Click the Place Module button to place an instance of the chosen Hotlinked Module in your Floor Plan.
