I started a project on my notebook and it synced onto my other PC.
very bad idea: you trust your files to some unknown entity using some unknown magic located in an unknown place somewhere on this planet, and you're surprised it doesn't work as you imagined in your dreams.
Before, every inserted part was a yellow building block and was visible in the 3D view. After reopening the synced file on another computer, now it shows as a rounded blue rectangle with green arrow. The same now happens when reopening the file on the original computer
the first sync screwed something up in your project, then you saved this screwd-up state, and the back-sync screwed-up the original project. Every-thing happened as expected.
I guess the green arrow indicates, that it successfully linked?
no, it means that it's an empty link, a link to nowwhere, a link with missing target.
How can I fix it?
open the assembly file, open all files that are (should be) linked in the assembly, and for each missing link, click the small button with ... on the right of the LinkedObject property field, this will open a dialog where you can re-assign the linked object.
or at least understand where my usage went wrong to avoid this issue in the future.
don't use "the cloud" blindly. It can be done but it must be done very carefully. In the engineering world it's called product lifetime management (PLM) and it's an own skill to set up correctly.
