  1. Edit Formula ==> Click "Filter..." button ==> Select object ==> in the filter popup, select Add Presentation Variable ==> Click OK ==> the variable is not part of the formula, only the default value
  2. Edit Formula ==> Click button "Column" ==> Select a column that has a Presentation Variable in its formula ==> the variable is not part of the formula inserted, only the default value
