Thumbnail

Is displayed in the Home area for recently used models. You can move your mouse pointer over the thumbnail of available, non password-protected models to see a larger preview. To show a particular status of a model, info tags are shown in the thumbnail.

Model closed

Indicates that the model has been used and is now closed. It is basically in "normal state", in other words, it is at the original location and is not password-protected.

Model open

Indicates that the model is already open in the modeling area. The status is shown for models that are still open if you switch from the modeling area to the Home area.

Model password-protected

Indicates that the model is password-protected. This info tag is shown for models for which the Use password check box is enabled on the Properties page and a password has been specified.

In this case, a default thumbnail that simply represents the underlying model type is displayed instead of the actual model content. No preview is available for these models.

Model not found

Indicates that the model does not exist in the location from where it was last opened. It is possible that it has been moved with an external program. If you click on the thumbnail, you will be informed that it cannot be opened. You will also be asked whether you want to remove the thumbnail for this model from the list of recently opened models.
