Edit Mode Icons

While in Edit Mode, standard Yellow icons indicate work in progress owned by the current user.

In Author or Edit Mode one of the following green icons indicates content for the current user pending approval

Edit mode, however, will also indicate work in progress and pending approval content that is owned by other users. These icons will appear as blue.

Note work in progress content is not distinguished from content pending approval if owned by another user. Both states render as blue icons.

These edit mode icons make it easy to distinguish which content requires that you take ownership of it before you can edit it. Once the current user takes ownership, these edit mode icons will now be yellow or green, indicating that the current user is now the owner. Also, once the ownership transfer has occurred, the current user will now be able to see this content in Author Mode.
