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.

Macro Parameters

These Parameters can be set differently for each Not Predefined Macro. You can’t preselect a dropdown value in the macro dialog for this macro.


Input Field Type


Default Value


Text Input Field

Here you can create your set with the desired options for the dropdown. The different set options are separated by a comma.


Current Value


Here you will be able to select the option/s you want to be shown on the page. If left blank, then no option will be preselected.




If checked, the dropdown will be displayed as a multi-dropdown, which allows you to select multiple options at the same time.


Blank Option


If checked, the dropdown will include a blank option that can be selected.


Reference Lock


This checkbox allows you to lock the dropdown (users won’t be able to change the value) if it is displayed in a Page Property Report or an Excerpt Include macro.


Permitted Groups


Here you can select groups which are allowed to change the values of the dropdown. If left blank then only users with edit permission are allowed to change the value.


Macro Width

Number Input Field

The dynamic macro width can be overwritten as long as it is not less than the calculated width. If the value is 0, the default width: 250 will be used.
