I think I have some customized old system files.  I don't have any .../local file
Overrides in the 3.8.4 system.  But based on your info, I found the file
        Ticket/Elements/ShowSummary
Which looked to be customized (or at least it shows the text "Custom Fields".

Comparing the two, it is clear that the 4.2.10 version does not have these Fields as part of the file.  Below is a DOS diff, showing the differences of between the files.  Can you tell me what file(s) I need to create to make a local override in the new system, and what you suggest for the contents?  The new system is a clean install, so the files should be default values.  Also, what other files do I need to look at for these custom fields?  I.e., ticked edit, self-service, others....

Thanks
