There are separate appearance setting in the Inspector that control the appearance of the tab panels when you hover over them. Select a tab panel, select the "hover" state and then you can update the setting to match what you get when you don't hover over the tab panel.
Are you talking about the tooltip? I did try putting something into the tooltip and it did not help. I did not see any way to format the tooltips, though. There were not tooltips when I created the tab or when I changed the format on the tab names, so I would think this would not happen. I cannot find any other settings in the Inspector Panel. Can you tell me which tab?
OH! I found it. In Appearance, dropdown list usually set for Normal State. YES! That fixed it (although I do not know how it got off in the fist darn place!)
THANK YOU SO MUCH!
