Using Variable "Custom Field " when posting a comment via a rule

Briefly describe (1-2 sentences) the bug you’re experiencing:
When I am creating a rule to post a comment, I want to add a variable item - the selection of a single select custom field. When I select the variables I want, it is showing in the comment box the incorrect name of the custom field that I want. However, in the preview pane, it shows the correct one. Once I refresh the rule, this corrects itself, but it is confusing when first creating the rule.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Create a rule
  2. Action → Post a comment
  3. Add any custom field variable to be posted in the comment
  4. See what the preview shows vs. the comment box shows
