Default Custom cost (Cost1) fields to timephased view in Task Usage

Apologies in advance if this is somewhere else....I've been searching for hours and have come up empty.

I have a project where I'd like to have timephased cost data shown for Summary Tasks when looking at the Task Usage view. The issue is, I want to do this only for the fixed costs, NOT the total costs (which have resources and materials summed up as well). I've already found another helpful forum that indicates that for some reason the default "Fixed Cost" field does not roll up to the summary level, which I was able to get around by creating a custom field for Cost1 which simply sums up the fixed costs within that summary. Link for that is at the bottom of the post, in case that's a part of the problem. You can see this illustrated in the screen shot below (circled in green for my custom field and red for the can see how the Calc Fixed Costs roll up to the summary level, whereas the default Fixed Cost field does not) that's all ok, and seemingly off to a good start.

However - What I would like to be able to do now, is to have my calculated Fixed Cost field in Green carry over to the timephased portion. When I go to the field selection options under Usage Details however, neither my custom field, or even the default "Cost1" placeholder is available to choose. Does anyone know how I can do this? Looking at the help files, it seems like it should be? But I'll be honest the whole assignment thing is something I'm just starting to understand.

So - any help would be greatly appreciated, I'm banging my head against this thing. If clarification is needed, I'm glad to elaborate. Thank you!!
