Toggle on/off status for motion sensor gone from Indigo 7?

I think there's been a loss of functionality between Indigo 6 and 7!

I have some triggers based on changes to motion sensor status. When the option sensor changes status it causes a short blink on a hue light. Thus when I'm (for example) in my living room I can tell when there's some motion at the other end of the house. This all works and I find it useful.

I also have a 'test' control page, with an icon for each motion sensor. In Indigo 6 I also created a toggle motion sensor action if I clicked on the icon. This means that I can test the sensor action for the lobby, while still in the living room.

I've just noticed that in Indigo 7, I no longer get any motion sensors in the drop down list for the 'toggle on/off' action. I can understand the logic behind the change, but it makes testing the trigger harder, since I can't run > speed of light between the lobby and the living room
Has the old (bad?) functionality gone, or am I missing a trick somewhere?

I seem to recall there's an undocumented way of getting this back / achieving this.

However if it's just testing, can't you use the log feature in Indigo Touch?
