I have two drawings, PID-001 and PID-002 on drawing 001, when adding a off-page connection going towards PID-002 the information on the "Drawing Number" should be 001, instead 002 shows up and the same happens when I am on page 002, 001 shows up. can you help me, please
Thank you

This is intended so that when looking at the off-page connector, it
identifies the DWG the line continues on. This behavior is coded into the
software. The off-page connector's style points to a block definition that
may be modified to include additional format string definitions so you can
add one for the current drawing number. However, it will not intelligently
be moved around like the ones we provide when the off-page connector points
in the other direction.

Hope this helps.

ok, thank you
can you please check page 65 on P&ID Technical Training
Chapter 5: P&ID Components
my off connectors do not do as shown on this page.
on the Technical reference
the origin page is in the flag and the destination is at the bottom.
in my case, the origin and destination connector uses the same number
Thank you
