Quick segment or filter for individual metrics within a multi-metric report

I want to be layer a micro segment (or filter) onto an event metric within a Discover report. This micro segment would allow me to specify a specific evar value for that event metric. At least I think that’s what I want.

 

Real world example. I am running a visits report and included an event1 metric. I have two segments, 1st Time Visitors and Loyal Visitors. I want to keep my trended view but also want to only see event1 if evar1=A

 

The best solution currently (if I want to maintain trending) is to create two new segments, 1st time visitors with event1 with evar1=A, and a Loyal visitorswith event1 with evar1=A. The additional segments are needed because I don’t want to segment the visits by this event and evar

 

I would love to just click on the event metric, and filter it for just evar1=A. Even better I would love for the filter to be somewhat smart, along the lines of 95% of the time the filter for event1 is a evar1, so that appears as my first option.
