A problem with clearing fields on marked cards

Charles,

I think you are almost there. But I would not use the "locktext" to 
distinguish label fields from all my other fields, for reasons already discussed. I 
would set a custom property:

if the isLabel of field u of card y is "true" then put empty into field u 
of marked card y

This is clean and unassailable.
