Same problem here, can’t even set the custom props by message box or script, this is on Mac OS X 10.11.1.
DP9 does seem to be quite buggy, lots of problems with the script editor, the re-introduced geometry manager, the tools palette, the effects palette, the list is getting longer each time I try something else. It seems to me that relying on auto-testing isn’t revealing all the issues, because I’m sure if anyone at LiveCode Ltd. tried these basic things manually they wouldn’t have released this version so soon.
I would submit bug reports, but right now I have way too much going on and not enough time to file so many reports, If I get some free time later I’ll see what I can do, I don’t like complaining to the list and not doing something positive to help LC Ltd. to address the problems.
LC8 does seem to be on a downhill trend as far as bugs are concerned, I really hope that changes soon, I’ve had to go back to LC7 to continue my projects with any form of reliability, but, on the positive side, I do like the way LC8 is developing with new features/widgets etc..

>> In V8DP9, the custom properties are accessed in the object inspector, by clicking on an icon along the top. That’s fine. But, I can’t get it to either display or accept a custom property that I enter. The dropdown menu only has “customProperties” listed. If I click the little diamond symbol, I get the dialog, but it is asking for a “custom property set”. I only want to enter a single custom property. Then, it never displays the property that I put in.
