I changed my current wip text before posting, not just throwing out suggestions, lol.
FYI, and may be critical to why it works,
Programs list side is my only item mouse over, and settings are normal and mouse over for the text, but only under the item mouse over text settings.
The places side, I am sharing the item mouse over and only set the places list Normal text, all others at os default.
The combination may not matter, but could, good luck, and I will check the post again.
