Should Substitution work on WEB?

Has anyone used substitution formulae on BOARD 10.4 WEB?  I trying to use substitution to show a user's active selections.  However, I cannot get substitution to work on the WEB; I've tried using labels and dynawrite objects.


I'd be happy to hear from anyone who knows what I'm doing wrong.


If it is the case that substitution, for display purposes, does not work on WEB, has anyone any idea whether it will in future and on what release?


Another use of the substitution formulae for me is as a visible verification when creating defaulted SELECTIONS using procedures.  Here I determine, within a procedure, the setting for a dataview or chart.  I can then reset all screens to their default configurations before promoting the model to production. During development, all such screens have a dynawrite object in which I place a substitution string for each reference and selection made in an object - eg: @selection_Ex(Layout="Layout Name",Block="Block name").


If substitution is not functional in BOARD 10.5, I will no longer be able to work in this way


Below is a screen in development.  The red box contains the substitution formulae which are applied to the 'Number of Properties Dataview' which can be seen in the green box - top middle of the image.


The same red box as seen on WEB - the substitution formulae has simply been shown as text:
