Where is the texture icon for the type of Active Data for texture with Cycles? One file ,with 1 scene of 2, does not meet my expectation. I often just assume Blender Cycles is working correctly. I do not verify with some test routinely.
Can I take an action to bring it back? Can a particular file become corrupt in this respect?
In a new file I see Cycles Texture icon.
In a file which has some nonzero work I see no texture icon for a particular Scene.
