Trouble with Flattening Electrical Harness as a 'Manufacture' Flatten Type

Hi, I have worked with Solidworks Electrical Routing for the past couple weeks and I have been able to create my own electrical connectors and route wires exactly how I want them to in my 3D models. My only issue is that I can't create a Solidworks drawing of the electrical harness that is easy to understand. I have been told that the way to display the flattened electrical harness in a way that is easy to see and understand is under the 'Manufacture' Flatten Type. However, when I try to use this Flatten Type I get an error message saying: “This Route Assembly cannot be flattened as it contains loops and/or disjointed route segments." What are disjointed route segments and loops? How do I get rid of them to create a 'Manufacture' Flatten Type wire drawing? Thanks!

 

I have tried using the other Flatten Type called 'Annotation,' but that type separates the wires, so you can't see where each wire connects to each terminal on the electrical connectors.
