I'm not sure David answered quite what Andre was asking. My guess
would be that Andre wants popup menu buttons that can show different
selected text on different cards sharing the same background. As far
as I know, you cannot do this automatically. You need to store the
current selection in a hidden field or custom property and apply that
to the popup in a preOpenCard handler.
