Bonjour André,

Have you a default column behavior for this dg?
You can check with your copy of DGH by selecting the dg in the year
card, then open the Behaviors / Templates topic of DGH. If the default
column behavior field is filled, when you click on the 3 dots button,
you will obtain an error message from DGH.

A behavior points to the long id of a btn, so the name of the stack
which contain the behavior btn is store in the behavior. When you
change the name of a stack the link with the behavior is broken.
