Rule Machine\Button Controller does not allow the use of variables for text fields

Perhaps this is already known or by design but the interface does not offer the option of using a string variable as a parameter. This is reserved for numeric or digital parameter types.
Just FYI, I can work around it.

It actually does. :smiley: Someone asked this question yesterday, and here is how you do it:

tl;dr - you can just type %variable-name% directly in your text (no drop-down needed since, unlike the other inputs, this one already allows you to type in arbitrary text)

Thank you. I had seen that %variable-name% listed as an option on some other screens but because it was not listed here I did not try it. My mistake, but now I know better.
