Hi antonino,

Thank you for your post.

The "blue square" is the map object "Status Icons > Name and status (sizeable, status-related background)" that displays a paused Sensor. The symbols shown in the blue square are from the category "Default Icons B".
You can add both objects in PRTG and then drag and drop them on top of each other.

Best Regards,

Hi antonino,

Thank you for the feedback.

It's difficult to see on a screenshot how a map is constructed. I'm glad that the issue is solved.

Have a nice day!
