Entity Properties Caption Will Not Resolve Application Variable

Entity Properties Caption Application Variable will not resolve in Entity Name.

Caption:

Payment

Name:

<%Caption%>FACT

Generates the following SQL

CREATE TABLE <%CAPTION%>FACT(
)
;

Instead of

CREATE TABLE PAYMENTFACT(
)
;

Is there a setting or option that I'm missing that allows the user to use the caption of the Entity in the Entity's name? Or can you confirm this is a bug? If so, is there macro/script workaround?

Using TDM 7.1.0.216 On Windows 10 Enterprise Version 1809 OS build 17763.914.

Hello,
Application Variables are not supported in all names of objects. At this time it is supported for

  • Relationships
  • Indexes
  • Keys
  • Check Constraint

When you open Application Variable list by CTRL+Space on dialog you can see in Supported Properties places, where you can use it.
If you would like this feature you can create post on our idea pond https://forums.toadworld.com/c/toad-data-modeler/idea-pond/75 .
