Associations should not be modeled against the pre-defined direction of the diagram’s sequence flow.

Associations (such as those used to connect data objects to tasks) should always be modeled along the pre-defined direction of the sequence flow. The default sequence flow direction can be defined in the Signavio Explorer in the ‘Setup’ menu at ‘Define modeling conventions’.

You have to make sure that the association is modeled along the direction of the sequence flow.
