    [title published by mod]

    It's because you copy the title, which creates a clone. Change and it changes the other.

    As I show in my book, Amazon, what you really want to do is title duplicate in right-clicked on it in the components panel of project and selecting two copies.

    A duplicate makes a copy of the title, but this copy is independent and any changes that will make her to this single copy.

    Hi thieto,

    The label you're looking for is af_panelCollection.LABEL_MENUITEM_QBE*.

    I'm writing a blogpost on this issue. In short, you need to create a group of resources of the skin.
    In the definition of appearance, refer to this class of the bundle.


    In this class, adjust the text of the label for your needs.

    package com.blogspot.lucbors.view.bundles;
    import java.util.ListResourceBundle;
    public class MySkinBundle extends ListResourceBundle {
      public MySkinBundle() {
      public Object[][] getContents() {
        return _CONTENTS;
     static private final Object[][] _CONTENTS = {
         {"af_panelCollection.LABEL_MENUITEM_QBE","the text that you want"}

    More in the blogpost
    Good luck

  • How can I change the text in a string of Coldfusion?

    Hello! I have a ColdFusion variable, which contains a URL:

    "For example, it looks like to <iframe width="640" height="360" src=" "/ /" frameborder= "0" allowfullscreen>< /iframe >.

    I want to do is replace the width of "640" by that of "450" and height of "360" with "253". I'm passing a string in an 'if' statement that will change the variables if the conditions are met. I can't change the variables before making it a string. I need to change the variables.

    What is the best way to do this in ColdFusion? I don't know this language (my expertise is more in JavaScript and PHP), I appreciate any help you could give me.

    Thank you very much for your help!

  • How can I change the text in a pdf document using an embedded font?

    I'm trying to edit text in a pdf document where the text is in a (Nimbus San) embedded font, but when I try to add some text in the text box, it appears in Minion instead of the police of San Nimbus.  I don't understand why I can't change by using the embedded font.

    The fonts are licensed assets subject to single use. They are not intended to share, redesigned, etc..

    As part of the PDF standard that they included in a document so that the document can be considered reliably without the police be installed on the viewing station.

    To change you must have fonts installed on your computer. The possibility for the second parties to use the police violate the licensing of fonts.

  • How can I get the Extension toolbar icon to display the image without text (without affecting the other icons universally)? How can I change the text of the icons (except space)?

    «In the drop-down view menu, you can choose what to display toolbars: icons, text, or icons and text together.» By default, Firefox shows icons only. "Is it possible to choose a setting for a specific toolbar icon to be icon only (no text) without affecting all the other icons on the toolbars universally?

    Second, is there a way to edit the text on a toolbar button by another extension (because it takes up too much horizontal space in the toolbar because of the amount of text)? I do not know how to locate the xpi file and open it with Notepad, but then it is mainly (not English) code & FIND is not to search the text of the button (to change).

    These 2 questions should apply to the buttons of the Extension in general. However IF it makes a difference I'm talking for the toolbar button back to 7.0 top of the page that says 'Go to top/bottom '. I would like to at least change on "Go to", but my questions also apply to the other buttons Extension. I realize that it may be necessary to redo a fix/change whenever there is an update? Thank you.

    You should always see this icon that only the text of the label could be hidden.

    You can try this code in the file userChrome.css below default @namespace.

    @namespace url(""); /* only needed once */
    toolbar[mode="full"] #b2tTBUnicon { min-width:0px !important; }
    toolbar[mode="full"] #b2tTBUnicon .toolbarbutton-icon { margin-top:-20px !important; }
