Support article - Explanation of symbols & icons in Creo Parametric UI

Description

  • How to identify symbols that appear next to models or features in the model tree

  • What the symbols in front of part/feature/assembly component in the model tree mean

  • Explanation of icons or glyphs shown in model tree or layer tree

  • General information regarding the icons displayed in the model tree

  • What does the icon with a chain link mean?

  • Exclamation mark and yellow triangle symbol next to model

  • When can I get a chart over all model tree icons and there meaning?

  • Windchill PDMLink icons 

  • List Creo Parametric model tree icons and symbols can be found in Creo Help
  • Some feature/component status glyphs
    • For more info see Help Center document: Understanding Glyphs on the Model Tree
      • black square Solid black square - Feature or model is suppressed
        • Solid black square on Model or Draft note means the feature that the note is attached to is suppressed
      • white square with black borders  Hollow black square - Component is packaged in assembly
      • User-added image Black square with dot inside - Component is placed with mechanism connections
      • User-added image Overlapping Hollow black square - Model is a child of a packaged component
      • User-added image Half filled rectangle - Feature is incomplete
      • User-added image Model icon in Assembly is hollow - Part is a skeleton model
      • User-added image Gray dashed square around a black cube - Component is Unplaced/Included
      • User-added image Two vertical parallel lines (pause button) - Placement of the component is currently frozen
      • User-added image Two vertical lines with square - feature is a child of a frozen feature
      • User-added image Red exclamation mark - feature failed or component is missing (introduced in Creo Parametric 3.0)
      • User-added image  Yellow triangle - feature is child of failed or outdated, component is child of failed or outdated, or component contains feature with failure or outdated, see article CS196415 (introduced in Creo 3.0)
      • User-added image Yellow flag - notification center, see article CS196415 (introduced in Creo 3.0)
  • Components with chain link icons (there are many, one example User-added image) indicate ATB enabled models - see article CS210510 and Help Center Model Tree Icons (A-C)
  • Layer tree icons
    • User-added image Hidden Items—Items temporarily hidden from the Model Tree
    • User-added image Simple layers—Items are manually added to the layer
    • User-added image Default layers—Created using the def_layer configuration option
    • User-added image Rules Layers—Layers defined primarily with rules
    • User-added image Nested Layer—Layer that primarily contains other layers 
    • User-added image Holds all same name layers of all components in the assembly
    •  Simple layer is activated (any drawing items created, shown, or pasted in the drawing are placed on the layer)
    • User-added image Simple layer Isolated (Displays the selected layers and treats all non-isolated layers as hidden)
  • Windchill menu commands, action icons, and status symbols used in Creo Parametric
  • Some examples are provided below
