Under what circumstances can newly placed terminals refuse to appear in the term/pp manager when they can be seen when you use Run Graphical Plan?
I have 3 terminals that appear on the schematic and reveal their existence on the wiring diagram & yet behave this way.
I have tried to rename them to a different device ID then change them back, to no avail.
(Running W7 Pro with 22.214.171.124)
Initially only the added ones 9,10 & 11.
They were spares and asked if I wanted to use them. Added as one end of the cable has all cores terminated but these 3 cores are spare non-connected ones at the other end.
Also IF relevant I added them by using place symbol again on a symbol on the same terminals devID.
However after re-running the "Run G Plan" the 9,10 & 11 appear in there but now the whole of the XTS3 term block has disappeared from Term pp manager, no matter how many times I run it or close and restart pe.
Did a bkup and rebuild which restored XTS3 but still no 9,10,11 or any other terminal.
Made block XTS66 with terminal 1 in it on the schematic. Looks like all my terminals and their standard settings.
However term pp manager see XTS66 but no terminals appear in it.
This occured to me when I had 126.96.36.199 running but was fixable by renaming the terminals devID to say XTS30 then okaying that. Then changing it back to XTS3.
This all goes hand in hand with my main issue with the current pe. Graphical plan terminals cannot just be refreshed or those pages redone without deleting the pages and then redoing them. Its still there in 188.8.131.52.

Richard, I'm either missing a key piece of the workflow or the problem is some kind of corruption because I still have not reproduced the problem.
Do you have a small project in which I can perform the steps you described above and see the problem? If so, please create a backup of the project with the "Create project catalog" option enabled and upload the backup according to Communities Secure File Upload. Then reply back here with the name of the file.
Richard, the problem is caused by having no Visible connection point text specified on the terminal symbols. While this should be avoided, I would not expect it to prevent terminals from appearing in Terminal/Pin-Plug Manager like it does, so I have submitted defect TFS 207097 to the development group for this.
Is there a reason you are using Hidden connection point (CP) text on terminals instead of Visible Text on the schematic symbols? Visible terminal CP text can be turned off so that it is not seen on the screen by using the Display Terminal Connection Point Text toggle in the Display Options area of the Design task. And Visible terminal CP text can be removed from wire lists with the technique described in the Removing Terminal CP Text from Wire Lists article.
