You can only 'copy monitor' certain elements from a linked file. If a floor in a linked model is copy monitored and that floor had modified sub elements (high points / low points / split lines) you loose them when the slab is copy monitored and the slab get reset to flat. IF however the slab is sloped by the slope arrow it will carry across. So in order to get the floor slab with modified highs and lows you can just use 'tab' to select the floor in the linked model and use Copy > 'Paste to same place' / ''paste to current view' to get a copy of the linked floor into your model.

 

Having said that you can copy and paste pretty much any element from a linked file into your file. Such as furniture, doors, windows, walls, foundations, railings, stairs, ramps, mech equipment etc Sometimes we do this even for temporary purposes and then delete the pasted element when the time comes.

This is great advice for elements that are not on the C/M list. 

I tried to faithfully use the C/M process so I saw changes in the linked model.  It is too bad that Revit doesn't allow a full C/M that includes modifications like you list for slabs.

Yes it's a fabulous tip WW and I just blew someone's mind (5+ years REVIT experience) in the office and I immediately thought Hmmmm I bet there's lots of people that don't know this one. She's buying me a beer for that one . . . And yes it sure would be cool if we could C/M any elements and not just levels, grids, columns, walls and floors.
