Limitations

Note that compatibility with Table and Computation cells has two exceptions:

  1. The cell cannot have a List page dynamically referenced inside of it (i.e. the cell cannot have {{LIST##}} typed inside of it). This will make the expose variable checkbox disappear.

  2. The cell cannot be inside of a row where User can add rows is enabled.
