Renaming status workslow button broken

I wanted to rename the default status buttons -->

I followed another users instructions to delete the jira.i18n.title associated with the status button in question for my workflow - this did rename the status button from the default to the name of the next step in the workflow, perfect. BUT, I now have an edit window that pops up everytime a user selects the status button simply wanting to advance to the next step in the workflow.

I'm guessing that I'm missing something basic here.

Hi Colin,

You are raising a question for JIRA OnDemand instance, and you mention you deleted the jira.i18n.title property. How did you manage to do that? Are you sure you are not using JIRA Server?

Also, are you referring to the workflow transition names? What exactly are you trying to do?

Your question sounds like you are trying to rename buttons that appear on issues to provide "click me to move through the workflow"

Those buttons draw their name from the name of the transitions in the workflow. You don't muck around with i8n files or anything horrid like that, you just change the names in the workflow.

Unless I've misunderstood the question?
