Yesterday I spent two hours on debugging one of my applications and searching for an answer. Of course, the problem was caused by myself. Here is what happened:

I copied a page and deleted the region including buttons and items using the Cascade to Delete Buttons option.

Set Focus on Added Row Tabular

This sounds quite simple:

Each of the found links will have a funny description saying:
