Insert connection strange behaviour

Recommended Posts



  I have strange behaviour when trying to connect 2 trusses with dead hang or hoist :


If I plot on true at 10m, another at 8m rotated 90° ;  I can select insert connection tool ; select one truss & then the other one. Then, the 2 trusses or connected. ==> OK

If I suppress the hoist or the dead hang (with "suppr" or "<--" keyboard key) ; I reselect the connection tool ; I can select any of the trusses for first connexion but when tool activated & link to first one, I cannot click on second truss ; it never switch to "red select" status (see picture enclosed). So I can never reconnect the 2 trusses. As if a connexion was still existing...


I am using the wrong way the tool ? Do I have to reset something ? purge physical connexion somewhere ? 


I showed to several colleague ; none of them ever experienced that...


Should I reinstall VW ?



thanks for advices
