Real simple questions:

1. I now have 8 CDMs and 8 associated LDMs. The icons for
both pairs on all of them have a red-filled circle on their
bottom left. What does that mean?

2. Only some of my CDMs have a LDM object inserted between
the master and detail entity on the LDM page. What is going
on?

Thanks,
Steve

Real simple answers :)
1. the red circle tells you that the model isn't open (so it
won't be included if you use the browser filter (in 16.1) or
search
2. the default LDM model options disallow many-to-many
relationships. So, if you generate from CDM to LDM, all the
many-to-many CDM relationships are converted in the LDM -
each one is converted into an entity and two relationships.
If you want to keep the relationships for the time being,
change the LDM model options when you're generating the LDM.
You can convert them in one swell foop later, by changing
the model options to disallow many-to-many (they call it
n:n); you can also change them one at a time - right-click
relationship symbol and select 'change to entity'
