    ............................. duh .... kettle.properties is never changed by spoon, it works the other way around. You change kettle.properties and the next time you start spoon you will see what you changed.

    You need new glasses... seriously, unless you made an error in the syntax in kettle.properties your new variable will appear in spoon.

    Strange that people sometimes belief when something doesn't work as they think it should, it's broken

    The dialog you open is to show which (non-internal) variables are used in your transformation... not those you defined in kettle.properties.

    You want to see your variable... go to a text box which has a diamond box behind it and press "ctrl-space"... in the list you get then your variable should appear.
