Hide automatically created "connection symbols"

For every part that consists of various electric symbols (ie: A relay with coil and contacts), Solid Works Electrical automatically places a symbol on the schematic that represents the circuits currently used and those which are not used ( I call them "connection symbols").

I don't want those additional "connection symbols" to appear on the schematic as those are already represented and I have to deal with my current space limitations. So I have tried the following:

  • Deleting them. But they are immediately recreated.
  • Placing them outside the frame boundaries on the sheet. This leads to an incorrect printing as it tries to fit the whole content of the diagram, not just the frame and its content, independent of the various scale fittings I have tried.
  • I may collect all in one sheet. But I currently have a 15 sheets limitation and I would like to prevent for using one just for this purpose.

Is there a way to deal this? Can those "connections symbols" be hidden or prevented?

I appreciate your kind help.


Thank you!
