Help me set the Plugboard to push Subtitles to my Kobo

I've created a Column in Calibre with the lookup name "#subtitle", type "Created from other columns". It has entries like "106,262 words, 6-7 hours".

I went to the KoboTouchExtended plugin, checked on Metadata:Subtitle, and tried to set the template. So now, every book on my Kobo has an entry that looks like this:
Code:
A Psalm for the Wild-Built
#subtitle
MONK AND ROBOT - 1
Becky Chambers
I've tried futzing with the Template Editor and the Template Tester, and I can't find a way to get the Subtitle field's data to populate to the Kobo. What should I fill in to make this work?

You should try with
Code:
{#subtitle}
in the plugin. I remember I had the same issue some Years ago. Without {} it won't work.

Perfect! Interestingly, it works in the Template Tester, but it doesn't work in the Template Builder, so I didn't think it would populate to the Kobo. But it does, so thank you very much!
