i Scott,

Just uncheck the "Share Text" box in the field "Basic Properties"  
property pane.
As I said recently:

> I agree: as fields, buttons should have a "sharedText" property.

When the sharedText properyy of a field is set to false, each card  
displaying this field (grouped with behavior's group set to true)  
shows a different text.
Use it for specific contents.
When the sharedText properyy of a field is set to true, the same text  
is displayed on all cards.
Use it for repeated labels, titles, etc.

Good luck!
