green object outlines

Greetings - I am a new user and still learning the details of SE. I copied some holes and each set of copied holes have a green outline on the hole surface diameter.  What does this indicate?

Thanks,

Typically means there are threads on the holes.  When you use the Hole command and specify a threaded hole, Solid Edge paints the surface with the "Thread" face style which happens to be green with textures turned off in the view settings and if turned on, looks like helical threads due to a texture graphic that is set on the style.


Thanks,
