how to stop text labels on numeric controls from disappearing

Got a nuisance problem I'd like to correct.  When I've got a previously defined numeric control (such as a slide or knob) with text labels, upon entering the control properties window and selecting the "text labels" tab, the first label defaults to clear/empty.  This is a nuisance because the text has to be retyped every time when modifying the text labels.  Is this a bug or a feature?  Is there any way to turn it off?  Thanks.

I can confirm that this happens in LabVIEW 8.0, but not in LabVIEW 7.1. I would think it is a bug.

Wow, cool!  I've always wanted to be the first to discover a bug in a new LV release!  😃

Are the right fix-it people listening?

LabVIEW R&D is aware of this issue (issue #3PP87GBQ), and it will be fixed in a future LabVIEW version.

This was reported to R&D (# 3PP87GBQ) and was fixed in LabVIEW 8.2. Here is a link to the current evaluation software download for LabVIEW.

Thanks!

Wow, thanks for the update.  I was just grumbling about this again two days ago.  Downloading as I speak...
