The modify solid tool has the option to use a variable however once complete it doesn't retain the variable link I hope this is an over site and not WAD.
Please fix this (and any other instance) where a user can pick a variable but the parametric solids forget the variable. If this cannot be fixed please at very least add a note to the user that it's not going to use said values more than the one time; it's misleading.
Thanks for reporting, I am able to reproduce Defect 988204 has been filed.
