Importing survey database points into drawing

I have a problem with the survey database. On occasion (as in, not every single instance), I will have an error when I go to "insert into drawing" my points. What will happen is only a small portion of them well import. I can delete the points from the drawing, re-attempt it, and usually on the 2nd time it will work, but on some occasions that won't work, either. Is this a bug with the program, or is there some step I'm missing? It seems to be a bug, because some days it works just fine, whereas other days, like today, it is very temperamental.


Help please,

It is a bug.  It will also occasionally happen with figures.  The best way I have found to avoid it is to highlight the list of points in the panorama and then right-click and insert into the drawing.
