Page variable dropdown

I cant seem to figure out how to use a page variable for a dropdown field.
I keep getting ‘incompatible’ and I have not been able to Google a way to solve it.
I want to use a page variable or app variable so I can use it different places.

Hi, the issue is that the option list is not a list of texts, it’s a list of objects with label and value fields:

You can modify your page variable to match this schema, and you’ll be able to bind it.
