DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT THAT SYMBOL MEANS?

This is a shower mixer family (file attached), and it's the only family i have ever seen that symbol (can't zoom it bc it re-scales automaticaly). I don't know what that symbol means. At first, i thought it has to do with the mid connector, but that symbol appears even when i just pre-select the instance (pic attached).

When I select the family the symbol appears too:

Seems to be a button, but its difficult to see because can't zoom in.

That family brought many problems: system pipe, level reference, selection in general. All the problems in the model (I suspect) are related to that family, and the only clue i have is that symbol....

Hello,

 

I have seen the first one in another situation, but I can´t test it with your family.

The second icon corresponds to mirroring the component along the insert work plane.

Aah,  muito obrigada por responder! 

Vou deixar anexado o arquivo do projeto pra você conseguir ver o símbolo exatamente como eu vejo. 

Na segunda imagem na verdade é o mesmo ícone, ele está bem em cima do tubo de água quente, e o símbolo de espelhar componente está à esquerda dele..

I don't know what that symbol is but I noticed a few other things:-

  1. Your view filters for different pipe system types are using the PIPE type as the filter rather than the SYSTEM type. You should change that.
  2. All of the pipes connecting to the 3-way valve are cold water.
  3. All of the connectors on the 3-way valve are set to Preset, none of them are set to calculated.

Have you tried hovering over the symbol to see if you get a tool tip?

How about clicking on it to see what happens?

Hello,

 

The other icon means a host-based family has no host assigned to it.
