What is the EDM Not Predefined Macro?

The Not Predefined Macro allows you to create a dropdown where you can select a single or multiple options from a not predefined set (as the name suggests). You can create your options directly in the macro dialog. This is the main difference to the other macros. The set you define is only available for the macro in which you define it.

It is also possible to filter for these not predefined macros in a page property report macro. See Filtering with the Page Property Report Macro for further information.
