[pmwiki-users] Random PTVs set with {(randk)} do not retain set values

Ptv like most things pmwiki will simply get evaluated like a macro.  Which can be powerful for some things.  Thus you never set a var to the value of a func.  The value is the func in most cases.

Subject: [pmwiki-users] Random PTVs set with {(randk)} do not retain set values

If I set a PTV to a random value with {(randk)}[1], say
Random_string: {(randk 7)}
I then would like that specific PTV to retain its value.
gets every time a new random value.
I am perhaps just misunderstanding the way PTVs are working;
nonetheless I am trying to find a way to "freeze" PTV random values
once they are set, in order to use them in pages and formulas.

Thanks for any hint :-)
