    Hi @kitcat ,

    Yep, that text is being 'helpfully' changed - you can overwrite this though by listening on the length as in this example here.

    Cheers,

    and change the js code

        "initComplete": function(settings, json) {
            let mtable = $(`#${tbl_id}`).DataTable();
    
            mtable.on('buttons-action', function (e, buttonApi, dataTable, node, config) {
                table.buttons('pageLength:name').text('<i class="fa fa-list"></i>');
            });
        });

    Good point - thanks for raising that. I've added a bug to our db for this so I can allow for the text not being changed in future. Your workaround will continue to work though.

    Hi,

    Just to say that I've committed the fix for this now and it will be in the nightly version shortly and in the next release.
