Making slight changes to connections

Something I've encountered while working with ASD is that you cannot make slight modifications to a connection without it defaulting back to how it was. For example, there is not option to give a plate a horizontal offset in a connection, so when I go and manually move a plate after placing the connection it will move and look fine, until I either update or modify the connection.


I understand why it does this, but our South African standards aren't fully catered for in ASD, so then the easiest workaround is to create a connection and then modify it to suite our standards.

Does anyone perhaps know if there's a way to explode a connection so that these minor changes will be possible?

You can try to save the connection after you make the changes then It shouldn't default back
