P&ID (P3D) Problem with connection points

(Sorry for my english)

I recently lost the connection point symbol. Replaces the circle indicating connected, and the cross indicates continue or change direction by the typical square autocad. Attached images of the P&ID (P3D) working properly and the workstation with the P&ID with error.
 The error is repeated in all open projects in this workstation.


without problem                                                          (I may continue changing direction line)

with problem                                                            (only allows me to move the point)

What are you seeing in the properties window for that object? It appears to be a regular AutoCAD line.


Did this start occurring all of the sudden or was the drawing ever exported to AutoCAD and imported back in?

Hi, the properties window shows the same as the correct line of P&ID (SLINE)....




this happened suddenly, all files (none was exported or imported), I suspect it is software problem (not the project), because I open the file on another workstation the problem does not occur, the connection points appear correctly.


Best Regards....

Check the project setup.  Under P&ID DWG Settings look at the Line Settings.  Check what the grip settings are for your schematic lines.
