When converting an element to a template, suggest substitution parameters based on the ConfigString

Currently, if the ConfigString of an attribute looks like this:
\\ServerName\TagName;UOM=uom

then if you right-click on the element and go to Convert → Convert To Template, the Substituted column will suggest this:
\\ServerName\%Element%.%Attribute%.%ID%;UOM=uom

regardless of whether TagName is in the format %Element%.%Attribute%.%ID%.

Instead, consider suggesting substitution parameters based on the ConfigString. For example, if %Server% evaluates to "ServerName" and %Attribute% evaluates to "TagName", then make the following suggestion:
\\%Server%\%Attribute%;UOM=uom
