The pictures explained the issue.  Very helpful.  In the future,
please think hard about how you /ask/ your question.  A clearly stated
question gets a quicker answer.  I am very sensitive to the difficulty
of asking a question in a second language, but that's even more of a
reason to think hard and ask well.

You are correct that the contents of the menus on the data summation
page were not being updated correctly.  That's a bit of an
understatement -- they were not being updated at all!  That's a pretty
horrible bug.

I have fixed this problem at the head of the github repository and the
fix will find its way into the next Windows installer.

In the mean time, the simplest work-around is to restart Athena when
you want to do data summation on a new project file.

You always have the option of downloading specific files from the
github repository and replacing the ones installed on your computer.
The files that changed to make this fix are:


Be sure to download the "raw" file and be sure it is saved with a
".pm" extension.
