It is.

If you want the text of a field to be shared across multiple cards, then 
turning on the sharedText property will be necessary.

When turned off, the text of a field is bound to the record of the card 
on which the field is present, rather than to the field itself, in order 
to allow multiple cards using the field to each have their own text 
displayed in that object.
