Water Droplet Doesn't Disapper with Iso Message

The disconnect water droplet does not disappear when an iso message is placed at the node. Software version is Plant 3D 2014. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks,

This drives me crazy when the iso message attaches to the node rather than the piping component.  I have no solutions but would like an answer/fix as well.

so you want the droplets (visual sign of disconnected piping) to disappear if an iso message is placed?? I know that what 2012/2013 version behaves and we do not want that for it will cause confusion.

Say you have a flanged valve with flanges on either side.  One flange is existing.  If you place an iso message on the valve near the existing flange, where your tie-in will be located, the red sphere will jump to the node location.  Eventually, it seems, the iso sphere will "join" with the valve and leave the flange disconnected. 

 

What you end up doing is deleting the iso message, rejoining the flange/valve combination and then recreating the iso message.

 

It's a pain.
