My library is kept in HSF format for ease of use with git, etc. In order to test my changes to the objects, I have to:
* Use LP_XMLConverter to "compile" the library part into GSM
* Use LP_XMLConverter to put my library into an LCF file
* Open ArchiCAD
* Add my LCF in the Library Manager
* Place the object

Also, when I save new changes to the objects, I have to manually remove then re-add the library and load it again. This often presents errors and I just have to close ArchiCAD and do the process again.

Is there a faster way to test objects? I tried copy/pasting between the editor within ArchiCAD and my own editor, but this quickly became tedious.
