Hi Jeremy -
Did you mean the Task Manager (on the right)?
If yes, in SolidWorks you can select Enterprise PDM, Options and select the View Settings tab. The lower half of the dialog shows the icons and their meanings.
No I meant the symbols on the icons in the Feature Manager (I should have been more specific). Let's say if you open a file in lightweight then you get a feather symbol on the Icons...
Okay - try searching the SolidWorks help for:
Component Icons in the FeatureManager Design Tree
Try these subjects (found in SW Help):
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:
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.
