I have many symbols next to the bolted connections in my browser in Inventor 2013 which I do not see changing. Can someone tell me what these stmbols mean and why there are there ? (please see attached pic)

That symbol usually means something needs to be refreshed.  Have there been any changes made to the Content Center parts used in these BC's?

Hi, thanks for your reply. I don't think any changes have been made to the content centre parts, I have saved the assembly file and re-opened however the refresh symbols are still present.

Further investgation shows this to be an "automatic solve" symbol.  Still digging to find exactly what THAT means, but to turn it off:  right click the BC in the model tree, and go to Component. Grab the slide out menu and hit Solve Off.  That will clear the symbols.

Great, thanks, that has removed the symbol. I think this may be due to a 3rd party add-in that I have installed on my verison on Inventor - may be called bolt solver or something ... ? Just a guess though really
