AN DN nodes for current orbit disappeared

Question

For example, I am on the way from Kerbin to Eve, Eve is selected as target, and i want to create a maneuver node on DN node of current orbit. But game does not show where AN/DN nodes are. It displays AN/DN nodes for future conics instead:

How do i activate displaying AN/DN nodes for all patched conics?

The game seems to always place the nodes according to your final "conic". Sadly for you, you have that planetary intercept messing you up.

Do it by hand. Go to map mode, rotate the map until you are on plane and then find the intercept point.

Or use mechjeb.

Or limit the number of conics until you get the one you want, like you did.

Try just placing a maneuver node where you think it should be? I think it will force it to show the nodes for the current orbit.

No it not.

My DN location assumption was wrong a little (by few centimeters)

I limited patched conics in game options to 2 and got a correct marker. But this way is very inconvenient.
