DON'T DO THIS !!!  You'll remove _all_ the custom
properties, including the ones you may have used
Go to the 'Properties' palette, click on the 'Custom'
tab ; click on the checkbox 'Show Revolution UI Custom
Properties' to show 'cREVGeneral' and any other custom
property sets managed by Revolution.

Some of the things stored in the cREVGeneral set :
- REVUniqueID : a unique ID, which is among other
things used in the geometry manager -- though it will
assign a new one if you delete tat particular cusrom
- bookmarks, handlerlist, tempScript, script : used by
the script editor to store your bookmarks, handler
names, text colouring and styling

Other cREV~ custom property sets contain information
for the geometry manager, for the database access and
table functions in version 2.0, etc.
So wiping this information can produce frustration.

Here's a tip for removing a specific custom property
set in its entirety from the selected object :
  put the customPropertySets of the selectedObject \
      into tCPSets
  set the wholeMatches to true
  delete line lineOffset("cREVGeneral",tCPSets) \
      of tCPSets
  set the customPropertySets of the selectedObject \
      to tCPSets

Hope this helped,
