I think there needs some discussion around what to be shown if no data as then token will have nothing to replace. Should be show as it is (no change) or just remove or return no data (empty).

! @joshi, so there is no way to insert strings with T?

Agreed. We've got 4 choices:
1) Always parse twig, but set first row as variables for twig depending on this UI "Use replacement tokens from first row" setting
2) Always parse twig, and always add the first row as variables, abandon the UI setting
3) Make a new setting additional "Process the input using Twig", and only offer the "Use replacement tokens from first row" if that is checked
4) Replace the current setting with a single "Process the input using Twig" setting

I'd suggest #2 is best - what's the point of these UI settings? Everything is presumably cached to the 11th degree, so I imagine there's no performance issue, and as long as we support Twig escaping then the twig parsing is not blocking anything a sitebuilder might want to do.

Twig syntax would only be parsed when the data is available or the token is available or present within the syntax. Please try these steps:

1.create a view and display it.
2.Should add a global filter text field to the header.
3.Replace the token with the first row. The first row as a variable should work properly.

If the data filter has nothing to replace if no data, then we should set something like no data or empty value or a message.

I think this is still valid if you want to use some twig syntax on a general header, even to be shown regardless of results/no results.

Agreed with #10. Always processing Twig empowers sitebuilders more, provides more consistency for developers, and makes for a simper easier-to-maintain and test codebase.

And also, when it says that it works "simliar to the global text on fields", there you can use twig, so that's what I was surprised when it didin't work there.
