Replace channel feature not showing all options

I have used the replace channel feature many times in the past and recently noticed that when I tried to replace a DIN, it would not show all of the compatible channels to replace it with. Meaning it will show some IDC's but not all of them. Does anyone else have a similar experience or could tell me if this is a known bug? Currently i am using the latest design 5x. All channels that i want to use as replacements are in the main part of my application logic (not inside a sub function group)

As the value type match, could it be that the channels you don't see in the replace dropdown has a different scope? 

Even when all places where the channel will be replaced are within scope, the replace function is quite picky. For example, a channel with scope private is only possible to replace with a channel of scope private, even if a public scope or function group output would work if you do it manually.
