Selected irrigation symbol does not "stick"

Question

Anyone know how to apply the correct symbol for irrigation heads (get it to "stick")? 

When I pick the correct symbol (1/3 head, standard vectorworks symbol, filled), vectorworks picks a different, wrong symbol (Q head, unfilled). Luckily, the catalog data remains the same.

 

Replacing with a custom symbol works, but it does not rotate correctly, cannot be manually rotated. Or maybe it can, but I don't know what to include in my symbol to create a properly rotating symbol, nor show how to specify the direction to the center of the spray pattern, nor basically anything I'd need to make this work. 

 

Workaround (bad): create a custom symbol that does not show arc so if it doesn't rotate, no big deal. Not a great solution, but better than quarter heads for half pattern!

 

OI Palette was my compromise so I could continue working. Yes, I really did want the symbol in "wanted.png"!

THIRD IMAGE: My crappy compromise that doesn't rotate away from the spray pattern.
