FeatureManager Design Tree Conventions
FeatureManager Design Tree Overview
Nope - some icons are there, but where is a list of the icons? There has to be (or should be) one for quick reference.Searching for help is easier if I knew what the official description that the traffic-light icon was.
Joy's suggestion finds this:
Assemblies > The FeatureManager Design Tree in an Assembly > Component Icons in the FeatureManager Design Tree
I wouldn't have thought to look in someplace specific to assemblies for something that I expected to be in the User Interface section.
It has some icons, but doesn't describe what the traffic light icon is called. I know that rebuilding the assembly or part usually causes it to go away, but I have a weldment part that constantly displays the traffic light icon. So every time I check out/in the assembly from PDM works, its a new revision even if I don't do anything.
In my case it may be becasue I used a top-level assembly hole wizard to make holes in the weldment and 2 other parts. Those features display the traffic-light icon in the design tree as well. I can't figure it out if I don't know what the traffic-light icon means.
Traffic light icon means something needs to be rebuild, can be an external reference.
Go to Tools > Options > Performance and set the "verification on rebuild" option to on. Now do a force rebuild (ctrl+q) and see if you get some finding about the issue.
