Not able to use variables in Drawing Sheet Editor

Using v6.0.7 I am not able to use custom variables as shown in this post:

System variables however show nicely as expected when the sheet is opened in schematic editor.

Drawing Sheet Editor:

It’s a bit messy because I only left room for initials, but the text fields are
Drawn by:${DRAWN)

Schematic editor:

You can see from above paste that only system variables are substituted with values but the custom ones are not.

Now I got it to work! I have no idea what I did differently. I tried to see if lower capital letters had to be used for user variables, then it worked. Then I tried capitalized letters again and this worked too…

Edit: I can actually see from the screenshot above that the variables had an extra ) in it, like ${DRAWN)}.
