Pipes not extending to the structure symbol

This is a fairly common issue which occurs when changing the drawing scale. Generally it can be fixed using the Audit command, unfortunately, in some cases it doesn’t solve the problem, neither does other commands such as Redraw or Recover, etc.:

Select the network, tick Adjust structure sump depth and set the value to a different value (keep in mind that you can only select structures with the same value, change the value and then back to the original value):

Fixed network:
