Why variable declaration is different from live to file templates?

Hello Intellij community

I don't understand why in file template the variable is $VAR or ${VAR} and in live template is $VAR$.
I almost every time forget which format is for which template.

@Intellij Dev Team:
- Is it possible to promote consistency for variable definition for both template types?


- Is it possible to suggest the file name for file templates? I created file templates for log4j.xml and testng.xml and each time I have to type these names when creating files from those templates. Is it possible to suggest the File name through concatenation?
${Template name} + "." + "Template extention".
Moreover I consider file template support is less powerful compared with live template. Could you consider redesign the file template support?

Regards
