openings not copied with slab

I have a structure, which I copied and openings have not been copied.

Instead of them there are contours, but for some reasons I cannot use them  to create openings.

Could you advice, what is a problem?   (I copied in past some slabs and they have been copied with openings)

Also, I have planar free load on surface ( irregular shape of load plane), which also has not been copied.

As I understand the reason is that such load is tied with points in 3D space and not with any structural objects.

Is there any way to copy such load or relate it to structural elements to make possibly copying?  If I have 30 storey building and I need to copy floors, do I really need to apply such loads for each floor separately?

No, you can define slab from smaller panels corresponding to loads contours then assing loads to these panels.

Thanks Rafal,

 

Below the picture where I shown structure where copied openings are shown in randomized way.  Some of them are  shown correct, some not. As there is no clear rule about copied openings display , I suggest to ask your programmers to look for a bug in display procedures.

Unfortunately in attached file I cannot repair copied openigs by moving slab.

I repaired openings in first file I sent, but in the second I sent  , not all openings have been repaired.

 

Naive question: why Robot  does not control rounding of coordinates after copying ?

It does.

I use this macro just "to touch" geometry to refresh background display

It does.

 

 

I am confused:

Robot does not show openings correctly  after copying. (They are even not shown in object inspector).  For me that means that there is a bug in your software.

To repair  them I need to   " move one of slab corners "  or  run your external roundig exe file. (which did not repair all of my openings).

 And you say that Robot has control. I cannot see logics.
