AUTO Flange

So for my current project my AUTO Flange isn't working.  I checked the default project(which I made no changes to) and it works.  I checked my compund joints and its setup correctly idecitcal to the default project.  For the simple joints the only thing I had to change was allowing 125lb flanges to connect to 150.  Would that be the reason why It wont auto flange?


I am also using a custom spec, which has flanges, gaskets and bolts, because I can place them in seperatly and they will connect.  


SOLVED see next post, new question there!

I solved my own problem, it was the fact that the valve was a 125lb with a 150 lb flange, I have over come this by removing the requirement for a pressure class at the moment.   Although i find it weird that the Compund joint was not grabing the information from the simple joint that allows me to add a 150lb flange to a 125 valve.



NEW question, while im routing pipe and i hit "f" for fitting and I add an elbow, then I want to add a flange to that elbow, it auto throws a 1" long peice of pipe inbetween the elbow and the flange, and I dont want it, how can I make that stop?


SOLVED my gosh i jst need to look harder lol, now im just talking to myself.  Just below is the Pipe segments where it says 1".
