Any way to force Event Labels to be treated as dimensions (text) vs. metrics?

Data Studio forces any created dimension based on Event Label (e.g. REGEXP_EXTRACT) to be a numeric metric, vs. a text dimension value.  I've tried forcing to lower case first, or concatenating with a blank string, but nothing works -- Data Studio considers Event Labels to be numbers.  

 

Any way to get around that?  Seems like a potential glitch.

 

Thanks.
