The icon is displayed only when there is an error condition, with no items built. On normal conditions, you can pick the Forest object clicking directly on it.

hi and thanks for your answer.

yes... i think there is an error... i tried to change the 3dsmax's viewport drivers, direct 3d, nitrous, opengl.... but nothing work.
i will check if there is something wrong with my cg drivers.

thanks again.

Ok, but can you see the items created by Forest or is the object empty ?

Remember that you can check the errors conditions on Forest, clicking the "Stats" icon ("General" rollout).

Yes, that's normal. The icon appears only where Forest cannot build any item, usually because there is not area defined, the density is too high or whatever issue. When this happens, you can see the description of the problem in the "Stats" window.
