I have a data object I'm creating using model admin, and within that there is a data-object-manger to select a related object. my issue is that it automatically generates a title which isn't appropriate for the page and I'd like to replace it with something of my own choosing, and possibly a note as well. I have a picture that explains is better, but I don't see the image upload field for some reason?

Are you talking about the text on the add button? You can use setAddTitle() for that.

no, not on add. the dom appears below my normal text fields for the object, but the automatic title is 'persons' because it managed a 'person' object. but it looks weird so I want it to say 'people'.

I have another where a MMDOM is on it's own tab. it says 'medias' whereas I want it to say 'media'.
