Plane thermal indicators disappear after pouring copper

I am working in PADS Layout 9.5.

I cannot seem to get the plane thermal indicators to behave.

I have several part types that have pins in split planes.

The plane thermal indicator for Pin 1 of some of these part types will show up, but as soon as I pour the copper into these split planes, the Pin 1 thermal indicators disappear.

The plane indicators for the other pins of these part types that are in other split planes don't disappear, only the indicators for Pin 1 of these part types.

I have several other part types in these planes that do not exhibit this behavior.

I have compared the properties of the affected and non -affected part types, but I just cannot see any differences.

I have tried resetting the pin pad and thermal defaults, and then setting the pad shape again, but the same thing happens.

These pins affected are all set to flood over.

The pins of non-affected  part types are not set to flood over.

Has anyone seen this sort of behavior before?

Any solutions?
