Possibly. Although if 'multiple desktops' (whether capitalised or not) IS treated as a feature, then 'multiple desktops' IS singular. If, however, one is counting multiple desktops (I have 4 on my main Linux box) then 'multiple desktops' ARE plural. Of course, this could be a case of

Hi. When you change an ordinary property, you set it to a new value: set the width of btn 3 to 50. A custom property is "filled" in the same way: set the rawText of me to chapterOneOfDonQuixote Custom properties are created just like variables; you just do it. Try this. make a new button
