I've got a Low Variables group setup called 'Widget sources'.

Inside this group I have 6 Low Variables, all Playa fieldtypes.

I've got some channel entries selected so there are relationship in the system...

I have a Matrix field type setup in a Channel field group which points to my Low Variable group. Multiple selections set to yes.

When I try to publish a new entry in my channel, and create a new Matrix row, my Low variable field type column is blank?

Should I be able to select something here?

What am I doing wrong?

See screenshots attached.

    What are the properties of those LVs? Make sure there not hidden and early parsing is turned off.

I'll quote the docs here:

Please note that only non-hidden and variables with early parsing disabled show up in the variable list in the Publish Form.

So, make sure the vars you want to select are not hidden and have early parsing disabled.
