Thank you very much Cray,

Your solution is very useful and works perfectly, but now I have another 

How could I fill out with texts this custom property ("rawText') by script?

My application is multi-language (English, Spanish and French), so when 
someone clicks on the language button, this custom property must be 
filled with the different data of the different languages.
I cannot see how to do that on the Livecode Dictionary.
