    Unknown Symbol in Project Browser

    Hi All,

    As the title says, I'm just trying to figure out the significance of the symbol (see attached image) next to the family "Brick" loaded in this project.

    Thanks!

    It means it's an adaptive component, I believe.

    Sent from my Phablet. Please excuse typos... and bad ideas.

    That's what I thought, however I quickly made an adaptive component family and loaded it into the host family and it doesn't show the same symbol? Perhaps a unique instance of an adaptive component? But unique how?

    That means it is an adaptive component that was loaded into the project when it was still in version 2015 (possibly 2016) in 2017 that goes away but upgraded projects still show it. I was upset when they got rid of it.
