I have this icon that I do not know how it got set and I cannot seem to figure out what it is.
I am trying to edit text and use the simple Select Tool. "The arrow"

There is a icon that looks like a pencil with trailing dots with a slash going through it.
What is this?
and
How do I turn it off so I can select and edit my text. I could not get a screen shot of it but hope you can help. Thank you.

There are 4 locked layers and they are all locked. Does that mean that all of them need to be unlocked in order for this icon to go away.....?
