Not possible to change connection point for a gateway when the connection is between different pools

I have two pools.In one pool I have a gateway. When a line goes from one pool to a different pool and then connects to a gateway, it is not possible to change the connection point for the line connected to the gateway.View attached image for an example. btw: I have to press the browse button twice to attach files here...

Dear Trond-Eirik,

Indeed it is not BPMN-supported to have a task from one pool connect to a gateway from another one (Bizagi will run a validation for this endpoint's connection while attempting this).

The reason that you could do this initially is because the pie menu of each shape does not currently include these validations.

We gladly share that we are currently working on these validations unification, so that the pie menu only allows connecting elements between pools as supported by the BPMN specification.

The mentioned adjustment is currently under progress and will be released in the upcoming version.

Further information about message flow connection rules, can be checked at the BPMN 2.0' section 7.5.2.
