Does anyone know what this icon means? I've tried searching, and I've tried creating one notebook of each type. Thanks

  • $\begingroup$ Perhaps you should give your OS and version of MMA. Also what do you mean notebook of each type? $\endgroup$ – Dunlop Jul 9 '20 at 18:56
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks - Mac OS 10.15, Mathematica 12.1.1. As for types - if you go to file>new you get options for notebook, styled notebook, presenter notebook, Wolfram Alpha Mode Notbook, Wolfram Alpha Mode Presenter Notebook, and submenus for programmatic, package, and repository which have their own types. Some of these produce files with the normal notebook icon, and some of them produce files with the greyed out icon like above, but without the vertical line down the middle. $\endgroup$ – Nemo44 Jul 9 '20 at 23:54
