Agilian Enterprise Edition, v. 10.0…
When mousing over an icon on a diagram, I see either a lowercase “a” (or a padlock symbol? – can’t quite determine) or an uppercase “M” character near the upper left corner of the diagram element under specific conditions, which I describe below. Could someone tell me what these characters represent?
I see these symbols as a result of reusing a model element. The scenario is this:
- I initially create a model element by selecting it from one of the diagram’s category menus and placing it on the diagram canvas.
- I drag that same element from the diagram’s model explorer to place a second instance on the diagram.
- Mousing over one of the icons, I see the “a” and I see the “M” on the second icons.
As I discovered this recently, I don’t remember which of the “a” or “M” appear on the initially created icon and which appears on the second, third or subsequently created instances of that icon.
If I go to the diagram’s category menu and create a “new” instance of a model element instead of taking it from the diagram’s model explorer, I do not see the “a” and “M” characters.
Could someone tell me what these symbols represent?
