Object/File Color Coding in the PEN Tool
The PEN tool color codes objects/files to make it easier to determine an object or file’s status at a glance. These color codes are grey, black, red, and blue.
- The file exists in the NEES Project Warehouse but not locally
- The file exists locally and in the NEES Project Warehouse, and the files are the same
- The file exists locally and in the NEES Project Warehouse, and the files may not be the same
- The file exists locally but not in the NEES Project Warehouse
If you forget what the color codes mean, there is a dialog box within PEN (Help > Color Legend) that lists the colors and what they signify.
You can also select the file in question in the left panel and read the file status hint that is shown in the right panel
