Propagate to edges with similar orientation only
Yes: Only edges with similar orientation are selected. In the above example only the horizontal top face or the wall are selected.
No: All minor faces of similar planar solids are selected. In the above example also the bottom face of the walls would be selected.

BimPropagate - Maps details (solids, holes, finishing geometry, ...) related to selected base solids to similar base solids in the model and optionally outlines the detail in a grid.
BimPropagateCorner - Propagates details connected to three planar base solids (i.e., corners).
BimPropagateLinear - Propagates connections between linear elements (beams, columns, pipes, ducts and their connections to walls and slabs).
BimPropagatePattern - Propagates a single element on a flat surface to multiple locations and grids; can be used to propagate lights, light switches, windows, air diffusers, etc.
BimPropagatePlanar - Propagates connections between planar elements (walls/slabs/roofs).
