Insulation Problem

Does anyone know why the insulation looks misaligned with the elbow centerlines (see attached image) ? It only seems  to do this on my elbows where the radius is smaller than the elbow length ie the elbows have a small straight at each end.

This should have the same values, are these customized elbow?

Which snap are you using when placing the insulation symbol?

I am not attaching insulation to the line I am selecting the line and then in properties pallette applying an insulation type & thickness to it. I believe the problem is due to the elbows having a straight stub on each end and the insulation doesnt seem to allow for this.

Has anybody another idea? I have the same problem, and radius in spec editor isn't a solution of the problem.

Sorry for a mess. After some more tries the solution is working. I forgot to account fasteners in radius value.
