Can anyone tell me why my Bearing Force Icon has changed from the top one (with orange) to the one below (without)?
The positive and negative forces are due to the local Coordinate System(s) orientation(s), they actually act in the same direction. Everything is the same with these two loads except the faces they bear on. What’s the difference?
Try right-click on the icon and and select "hide" or "show" - whichever shows-up. I know the developers use an algorithm that removes the colors on an icon if it's symbols are hidden on-screen - but you may have to toggle it to get it to work (or save, close, re-open the file and try all that toggling again). I have found in some cases it appears the graphics card won't update symbols on-screen, too. Hope that helps.
