Archicad Layer status icon shows multi-colored dot

When clicking multiple times (not necessarily too quickly) on the Archicad Layer's status icon it alternates between black and other colors (blue, red, yellow, orange) and it also makes all the other layers' status icons in the list switch to that color.

 

Have you noticed this? Do you happen to know, is it a glitch or a functionality which escapes me?

Thanks for posting your reply here. Are you saying it's just an Easter egg type fanciness, and it means absolutely nothing useful? Nothing changes with layer settings when the color switches?

Thanks again, much appreciated.

PS I will never get those 20 minutes of my life back.

Thank you very much for this answer. I am an Archicad trainer and I seemed to know nothing about the software when one of my students came to talk to me about these Color eyes. An easterEgg of course!

There are many Easter Eggs - usually one for every version.
