Autocad Electrical 2012 3 phase wiring

Has anyone else notice that when drawing three phase branch off of a three phase bus that the way the wires bend is determined by the first conductor you click on.  The first conductor you touch is always on the bottom. So in order to have the three phase branch to bend where Phase A is on top, Phase B is in the middle and Phase C is on the bottom you must click phase C first.

Did they remove the Flip command from the multiwire insert in 2012.


Previous versions had a function where during the multi wire insert, with a direction change, you could hit 'F' and the wire rotation would change from one side to the other of the first wire being inserted.
