multi pin multi cable connector, how to

We use a lot of large (44 and 78 pin) custom made connectors here for avionics. These connectors often have multiple 2-wire, 3-wire, CAT 5 and discrete wires connected to them. I have the solid models in which I have added c-points to each pin. This "works" but limits me to adding only discrete wires to each pin, if I try to add a cable, say a triple, I can attach it to a c-point but it does not allow the other two wires in the cable to be attached to other pins.

I can't be the only one who needs this. How is it done?

Here are a couple examples of what we do, sorry for the blurry pictures, and one example of something in SW electric that is very close to what I need.

Note the underside of one connector has a shield block where shields from the doubles and triples are terminated at.

I can't believe there is NO book on this subject!!!

Thanks for any help.
