Catia V5 light symbols missing

I did something, and the light symbols (the small cylinders) in the dialog boxes like scene editor for photo studio easy tools, and view-->lightning... are gone. I see only the blue globe, and the irradiation of lights on the globe, so the light(s) are on, I can change whether to use one or two etc. lights, but the symbols are missing, so I can't modify the directions.

Any help to get them back would be appreciated!

Picture attached, there are no light symbols..

hello NG,
You should delete CATSettings file when CATIA is closed. Restart CATIA again then light symbol will appear again.

I couldn't access application data folder, but then I reseted the general tab settings in tools--options, not even the whole thing, and the little bastards showed up instantly.
