Has anyone had any experience or luck using a bi-directional link in CADWorx P&ID?

I had a symbol for it but when you define the symbol in the menu editor you still have to pick either to or from. Then you can only link in one direction.

Just curious if anyone had a solution.

Thanks!

Management-wise it still has to be treated as unidirectional, and the designers have to be aware of that. It helps to have some basic design rules e.g. "Bi-directional connectors on the right are always 'to' and those on the left are always 'from'". I also built the blocks and connectors to easily read if they are the to or from version.
