Just relaunched using Awesome Table + Geocode and I'm having some tooltip issues that I can't figure out.

My tooltips aren't showing up except for the full address line, and the custom edit / HTML will not edit or save. When I click open map, I get directions to update the deprecated view of Awesome Table, but this is a brand new table (made last week). There's nothing for me to updates; I'm logged in and use it in the new Sites.

I assume I broke some sort of link by adding conflicting programming or functions throughout the sheet but can't seem to figure out what. Would very much appreciate any insight into tooltips--my site depends on it. Thanks in advance.
