Since we installed Archicad 23 the Relative Base Height (Elevation to Project Zero) defaults to Zero This causes all our objects that we place in the project to be 100mm above Project Zero. We would like it to be Zero. Where can I set this globally so that all the objects are placed at zero above Project Zero.

If you're using favorites you might need to update them.

If not:
The things you set in a tool will stay until the next time. So just set it once, but don't place anything. This can be done everywhere, e.g. set a default layer for walls.
If you're happy with your "defaults" just save the file as a template: it will remember the tool settings as well!

For all the objects already placed:
Just use find&select.
