Configuration Editor symbols

Configuration Editor symbols

Does anyone know the meaning of the different symbols in the Configuration Editor?
I recently upgraded to Creo 6.0.2.0 from Creo 4 and I had to make a few changes to my config.pro file. I saw that in front of many of the Names in Configuration Editor there suddenly was a "forbidden" symbol (red crossed circle). I have always been used to many symbols in front of the names e.g. "yellow lightning bolt" and "blue wand" or whatever describes them the best. I just never gave it too many thoughts but now that I see the "forbidden" symbol I got curious.
I have searched throug the help files and the community but with no success.

I believe those usually indicate when a setting is not valid. Sometimes settings are changed or removed between versions of Creo.

 

It would be nice if PTC would add a hover tooltip to tell users what the different symbols mean.

Sounds plausible. As you said it would be nice if PTC could add some kind of explanation for the symbols in a hover tip or something. It would also be nice to know why it is not valid. Should I delete the setting or shall I change it to something else to make it valid and so forth.

I assume the lightning bolt means standard option and the blue wand means not standard. Then there is the blue square in the white square (I assume this is meant to be a PC) which I have no Idea what means either.

Perfect! Thanks.
Seems I was too stupid to find this myself.

Nah, I'm sure you're not stupid.  Finding stuff on the knowledge base sometimes requires knowing the key words PTC uses for things.  Learning what these are comes with time and experience.
