List Magic

I tried changing the "en" tooltip for the header group of a ListMagic  
1.1.3 list that only permits filtering (tooltip: "Right-click to start  
or stop filtering") and the tooltip appeared as expected while I  
stayed on that card.  I made no other change to the list. I saved the  
stack.  Then I went to another card and came back to find that the  
original tooltip ("A right-click allows many operations") had been  
restored.  Is there a way to make the tooltip change permanent?  I  
noticed also that the "en" menu text is also restored. (Note: the list  
is initially hidden and the list group and field are shown on the  
press of a button.  There is no manipulation of the list except hiding  
it on openCard, and none at all on closeCard)

My apologies for being away and not noticing this post sooner.

Yes. To change this tooltip, go to the card where you have installed a
ListMagic widget. You will find a group with the name you called the  
This is the header group. Go to custom properties for this group and  
cSSSTooltips. Then if you want to change the English tooltip, select the
*en* custom property and change it to whatever you would prefer. You  
also find the cSSSMenus here for the header. To make similar changes  
for the
list itself, change the custom properties of the same names for the  
that has the name you gave the ListMagic widget.
