I'm happy to write off that error to garbage data. That was my Test library into which I've tossed and removed every bit of junk and dross you can imagine over the past several years, e.g. there could be icon rules floating around for columns that no longer exist or icons that no longer exist etc.

I'm more concerned that on a clean library with no pre-existing icon rules the EM icon didn't show up on a second item until I shuffled the rules around in L&F Column icons and hit Apply.

If I restart calibre - all the icons will appear. The problem seems to be related to having multiple icon rules on the same column.

I'll do a test with regular column icons - but IIRC in that case after adding a rule you have to hit the Apply - I'm pretty sure.

Yeah, after adding/changing/any rules you have to hit Discard or Apply.

Version 1.0.5 Entity 'Column Color' Rules. Enhancements to 'Column Icon' Rules

Version 1.0.5 - 2019-01-13 Entity 'Column Color' Rules. Enhancements to Entity 'Column Icon' Rules.

ToolTips, including Menu ToolTips, are required reading. There are functions and features that you will not discover or not understand unless you initially read all of the ToolTips, including Menu ToolTips. If you use the Favorites Plug-in instead of toolbar icons, you may have to add the EM icon to a visible toolbar temporarily so you can view the Menu ToolTips.

Refer to the images attached to the Original Post for EM.

NOTE: Version 1.04 EM users must click the EM icon one time to invoke the EM main window, which will automatically upgrade your database to Version 1.0.5 which has more EM tables than the prior version. The main EM menu action always does any necessary housekeeping every time it starts. There is a ToolTip to that effect in the menus of Column Icon Rules and Column Color Rules.

Example housekeeping: you add a new Custom Column to the current Library. EM must know about it before you add Icon or Color Rules, or even create an Entity for that new Entity Type.

Can I have a plugin that converts .ui files (with tooltips) into an epub? :->

I have EM in the book list context menu, my problem with the tool tips is that they obscure the list of available drop down options, i.e. the very things they are describing. Same thing happens if I put EM in a toolbar or menubar.

Does Qt provide the wherewithal to force them to display at an edge of the drop-down list (left, right, top, bottom) rather than where the cursor happens to be hovering.

Rather than hunting through my library for extra long authors or tags, can you put a limit on the width of the pulldown or something?
Since you wrote a plugin, I assume you can use SQLite to do this type of thing for any textual column you wish to shorten if it is too long:

Code:
[Not Tested due to Trigger] UPDATE books SET title = (REPLACE(title,(SUBSTR(title,115)),''))
WHERE LENGTH(title) > 115;
Afterwards, run a TRIM on the same column to remove any trailing spaces.

Since the SQLite tool that you would be using has no active user-defined function called 'title_sort' that Calibre creates whenever it runs, you will have to temporarily copy the Triggers for the table (books in the example above) to a text file, drop the Triggers, run your queries, then add the Triggers back to what they were using the copy you made. I did not want to go to the effort to do that just to be able to test the example query shown above.

Requests for new plugins go in the "Plugin Ideas....add yours here" thread so that all interested persons can see them. Note that .ui files are only created by Qt 'Creator', which I have never used. I hand-code my Qt.
