You can use the Query System --> Theme Storyforming for exactly what you describe. You can even multi-select when you're not certain, like "I think my MC Problem is either Pursuit, Help, or Conscience" -- you can pick them all and it will narrow down selections for other things.
Note: I have PC version so menu options might be named differently, not sure.
Also... the Theme Browser is often the best way to holistically understand what is going on with your storyform choices. Do you know you can "allow storyform changes" in the Theme Browser? Then you can pick all the throughline-specific choices from the Theme Browser (you still need to select things like Limit, Judgment, etc. from Story Engine or Query System).
