2020 > 2021: Already Connected Term Panels Broken

Recommended Posts

After Upgrading from 2020 to 2021, already connected Term Panels can not be connected with a 2nd wire.

Example: You have 2 Term Panels for connections between 2 locations, and then (besides the location link) you want to add the connections for the devices.


- This was possible in 2020, but clicking the Socket in 2021 does just ignore it.

- Connection an unused socket works.

- Changing the "Number of Circuits" to 2 on the inside port object does not help.

- Deleting the "location link" allows a new connection. But still only 1 at a time.


See attached files.

In 2021, it is possible to connect things to TP 17-20 but not to 01-16.

Hi Matthias,


If you turn on Snap to Object you'll be able to connect. We'll look into this and see what's happening.

Hi Matthais


Using Snap to Object is a workaround. Connect should not depend heavily on Snap settings. What was happening is that once a circuit is connected the Connect tool is detecting the Circuit not the Socket. If you send the circuit to the back in the drawing list you will also be able to connect again.


In the past few hours our team have already done a fix for this and tested it. Now we have to go thru some procedures to get it released.


Thanks again for your super reports!
