I ran into an issue with trying to connect a line using the off-page connector. I was able to connect the two lines and everything looked good. I accidently deleted both off page connector symbols from the two drawings. When i went back to connect the two lines again, nothing worked. I tried both connecting to an existing connector and by placing a new one in the connecting drawing. When i click on the off-page connector i want to connect to, it contines to ask me what connector i want to connect to. I tried another connection in the same drawing and everything went great and connected the two drawings.
Thanks in advance

Run into this problem a couple of time. Try audit project and see if it works.
Or you can try, substitute the line with another class, then substitute back. Worst case, the line has to be redraw.
Ok, it looks like, i'm not the only one with this, for me, BIG problem.
I find out, that sometime's the lines are still connected, when the off-page connectoren are removed and audit project, doesn't fix that. You can see that, when both lines are using the same linenumber ore other information, and if you change it on one sheet, the other sheet will change also. So it is not possible to connect them again with an Off page connection.
Indeed, redraw the line is a solution, but you can also try to disconnect the lines, select the line, go with your right mouseclick to Schematic Line Edit and Unlink. But don't forget, to check the lines, because, all the links are gone, also with other connected lines on the same sheet. Some times, this is a faster solution then redraw.
You can also try to use Detach from Component, when your Off-page Connection arrow is still there and you can't get it removed, that is for me, an other big problem with the off-page connections.
i found the problem is caused when
1. You delete one of the off page connector, it save the drawing.
2. It then disconnect the off page connector in another drawing but it didnt save that drawing.
3. So if you close the other drawing without save, the link will still be there the next time you reopen.
can someone reconfirm this? It will be good to log this as a bug to autodesk
