Custom field context not working?

Hi, I have a custom label field with a context for each project that uses the field. However, if I create a label in Project 1, the label is available for Project 2 too. I thought that since both Project 1 and 2 have separate contexts they would not share labels? How do I configure the field if I don't want Project 2 to see the labels used by Project 1?

Ah, for most custom field types, you have the right idea.

However, a label is a global field - one of the points of the label is to allow cross-project labelling.  Your contexts control where it appears, but every label in use in the field is global.

If you want different label sets, you need to use different label type fields.  For example Labels_1 for projects 1, 2 and 3, and then Labels_2 for project A, labels_3 for project C and so on.
