Irrigation - Auto-Connect

Question

With the new irrigation tools we are still trying to figure out a workflow that streamlines connections on a large job. Unfortunately it is much harder to layout a clean diagrammatic irrigation plan using the new tools since after pipes are created, offsetting lines is no longer an option.

 

Additionally, the process to connect several emitters to lines can is very cumbersome when using the pipe tool and we often experience issues where items become "disconnected" from the network despite the fact that they appear to be connected...blue drop down arrow is present and asks Detach from Pipe Network, despite the fact that the emitter isn't connected to begin with.

 

Perhaps there is a way to create an Auto-Connect command that could be run on selected emitters. This command could automatically draw in connecting lateral pipes to a chosen branch lateral already drawn? Or correct connection error problems by joining to the nearest drafted pipe?

 

Anything to save the headache of troubleshooting connections when your calcs tell you that 5 emitters out of 1000 are not connected properly.
