Changing "Brief View" in www_const.eng is not reflected in UI

One of our libraries would like to customize the Brief View display text using /ins01/tab /www_const.eng but were unsuccessful.
They have changed "Brief View -- Brief View" to "Brief View -- "Descriptive List" [start_w, start_s], but the change isn't reflected in the UI.
1. Cleared utf files in /exlibris/metalib/m4_2/utf_files/ins01/tab/www_const.eng
2. Updated /exlibris/metalib/m4_2/ins01/tab/: was: "Brief View -- Brief View" - I changed it to: "Brief View -- Descriptive List"
3. Ran start_w and start_s
4. Logged into the /V and did a simple quicksearch in the "Science" but the change isn't reflected in the UI.
QUESTION: Which of the following "brief view" labels should we be changing in www_const.eng to make the text on any/all of their brief views say "Descriptive List" instead of "Brief View"?:
Brief View -- Brief View
eShelf Folder Brief View -- MyFolders Brief View
MetaSearch Brief View -- CustomSearch Brief View
QuickSearch Brief View -- QuickSearch Brief View
It looks like when you upgraded to v4, you didn't re-customize the newer version of the www_const.eng file.
Consequently, there are several missing sections in the current ins01/tab/www_const.eng file.
If you do a 'diff' between the currently active file and the standard file from ins01/tab/ you can see the missing sections:
> v_first -- <<
> v_first_dim -- <span class="fade"><<</span>
> v_last -- >>
> v_last_dim -- <span class="fade">>></span>
> v_next -- Next>
> v_next_dim -- <span class="fade">Next></span>
> v_prev -- <Previous
> v_prev_dim -- <span class="fade"><Previous</span>
> text_table -- Table View
> text_brief -- Brief View
> text_full -- Full View
> v_new_name -- Clipboard
> v_new_desc -- This group contains the resources that were recently added to a new group
> text_original -- Original
> text_converted -- Converted
> text_category -- Category
> text_subcategory -- Subcategory
> direction -- right
> ! Cluster/Facet
> TOPICS -- Topics
> DATES -- Dates
> AUTHORS -- Authors
> JOURNAL TITLES -- Journal Titles
> SUBJECTS -- Subjects
> DATABASES -- Databases
> After -- After
> Before -- Before
In order to correct this I suggest that you copy the www_const.eng file from ins01/tab/ and replace the current file.
Be sure to create a backup of the current www_const.eng file before you copy any files over from ins01/tab.
If you've done other customization of the current file - you'll need to add those customizations to the newer www_const.eng file once you've moved it into the insco/tab/ directory.
Of course, once you establish the file, the "Brief View " text will be displayed again in place of the code "text_brief".
So, getting back to the original question, you'll need to change the following text of the www_const.eng that you copy over from ins01/tab/:
From: "text_brief -- Brief View"
To: "text_brief -- Descriptive List"
Be sure to re-start your web server once the updates are complete.
