Background images in feature slider set to post category in pagelines 2

Now, I can't seem to get that list of PL Meta Settings on an individual post.
Are they not appearing below the HTML/Visual Editor at all? The feature slider will need to be active in the Single Post template in order for these settings to appear.

Below the HTML Visual Editor I have selected everything from Screen Options above.
So I have:
1) a bunch of stuff not necessary to this conversation
2) A box called "Pagelines Meta Settings"
3) A box called "Feature Setup Options" (it has a small blue box next to the title that says "Single Post"
I didn't add "features" to the "Blog Post" page in "Templates" because I don't want the feature slider to appear on single post page.
I have all the necessary info in the "Feature Setup Options" box and I have the following settings for Meta:
Site Defaults > Features
This was set to nothing, meaning that every box says "-Select-"
Under this setting, the "Feature Setup Options" Box does not appear in the backend of an individual post even though I have that set to the Meta > Blog Post > Features settings below. But it is still calling to my posts and using the "featured image" on the right under tabs.
So, I changed Feature Post Source to Use Post Category and assigned the correct category.
Now, under the HTML/Visual Editor I see the "Feature Setup Options" box.
Blog Post > Features
This is basically set to -Select-. The only thing I changed was:
Feature Post Source > Use Post Category
Post Category (Blog Post Mode Only)) > set to the category I'd like to use.
This isn't seeming to change anything for me and doesn't control whether or not I see the "Feature Setup Options" under the HTML/VE.
Now, the feature slider on my blog page is showing the posts in the assigned category. It does that regardless of the whether I set that in Site Defaults Meta or Blog Post Meta. But Blog Post Meta settings will not give me the Feature Setup Options.
But, it is using the "featured image" (on the right underneath categories, tags, etc.) as the photo for the background image inside the feature slider on my blog page.
When I delete that photo, it goes to the Pagelines black background.
It is not calling to any of the information in the box "Feature Setup Options" including the "Feature Background Image" or the "Feature Thumb (50px by 30px)" I uploaded into the "Feature Setup Options" box.
I know this is a lot to read and I thank everybody for any help. The settings are just confusing me and I want to be clear about what I'm doing to see what the problem is.

I thought it might be helpful to illustrate some of the settings to see what the problem is rather than have to read through all of it.
I hope this helps to clarify the problem.
