In the Database editing window under Fittings>Connectors changing the toggle from Rectangular to Round or to Oval does nothing. I have no access to round or oval connectors.

Anyone else having this issue?

I reported this to Autodesk 5/10 and they said they were aware and working on a solution and that entering a round/oval item, going into edit item connectors tab and clicking the arrow next to the connector was the best work around they have until fixed.

I'm not convinced it's merely a UI issue. They've likely jacked with some back door wiring to facilitate their cloud database experiment.  Otherwise, why would this break? Connectors haven't substantially changed in a long time. And if it were a problem with tech behind the UI, you'd likely see it in other areas where there are dropdowns.

So I'm holding off until a fix is out.

Darren, they broke Oval and round connectors long time ago if you are using Double Wall, if the SPEC is SLIP Connectors it is NOT adding couplers automatically, I have told them this 100's of time, show them pictures, videos and they still to fix this issue...

I guess we will forever be forced to stay with 2020...

Revit? CAD/CAM/EST? All of the above?
