  • You must have write access permissions on the header run. If you do not, the branch and header runs get disconnected when you move the branch.

  • You must select a straight feature or an along leg feature to move the branch along the header without disconnection. If you select a turn, an end component such as the Y-component, or an end feature, the software disconnects the branch run from the header run.

  • If you select Pipe Runs in the Locate Filter, the software disconnects the branch run and the header run at the branching point. For more information on how the software disconnects at the boundary connections, refer Appendix: Moving at Boundary Connections.
