I can't seem to figure out what I would type in the "parameters" box to make this work.

I am thinking this just might not be possible via the GUI, thanks for your answer – PhoenixAD May 26 '11 at 13:53
That would be strange, I don’t see why it wouldn’t be possible; it even shows it in the help file, and there’s no mention of it in the FAQ. I’ve asked on the forums, but there are more questions than answers there. Maybe it’s a bug, in which case a bug report could be filed. – Synetech May 26 '11 at 18:51
