What does this orange gradient in my layers mean?

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the fast reply! That's interesting because I did start out with a symbol to create that shape, but once I got what I wanted I selected the individual shapes and combined them. Then I deleted all other symbols in my project. Is there a way to de-symbolize?

Use the Detach button in the Symbols panel.

Ok, that works. Thanks. The problem I was running into was that I pulled the combined shape out of the symbol and put it on its own layer. That seems to implicitly make it a symbol layer, but it doesn't show up in the symbols pane. If that's confusing I can make a screenshot to try and explain it better.
