[oXygen-user] author framework, ${selection} variable in ${ask} dialogue

Hi list,

I have another question regarding the definitions I am using in my  
author framework:
In a SurroundWithFragmentOperation I have the following Fragment argument:

<choice xmlns="http://www.tei-c.org/ns/1.0">
     <expan resp="${svsal-user}" cert="${ask('Wie gewiss ist die  
Richtigkeit dieser Expansion?', combobox,  
         ${ask('Wie lautet die Expansion?', generic, ${selection})}

This expands local editor variables such as ${svsal-user} correctly  
and works fine with the dialogues, but it seems to ignore the  
${selection} variable that I want to use as default value in the last  
dialogue. The textfield that this dialogue displays is empty all the  

Is it not supposed to work this way?

Thanks in advance and best regards,
