Clips lose their routing points when inserted into an assembly

I first encountered this issue when trying to route in a big assembly. Then I made several smaller assemblies to see if this could eliminate the problem. First I routed in one of the sub assemblies without any problems with any clips I inserted. Then I took this sub assembly into the main assembly to route other cables, again through clips. Then the issue occurred again.


The problem is this:


I insert connectors and everything works fine so far. Then, when I try to insert a clip (any clip, be it a pre-existing clip or a self-made one) from the design library, and none of the route points appear! Usually, when inserting a clip, all of the routing points, usually two, and the two axis defining the clip, appear when they are inserted. The clips just looks like normal parts, and when trying to route through clip I get the message "please avoid the selection of faces and reference planes".


Do any of you have any idea as to why this is happening?
